Florida voters support casino amendment

A new poll revealed that Floridians would likely vote to support a casino amendment.

US.- Approximately 71% of Florida voters would support Amendment 3, which would require voter approval of casino gambling decisions, according to a new poll. The survey took place between July 18-24.

Of the 1,209 voters, 18% said that they would vote against the amendment, while the remainder was undecided. The poll taken by Hill Research Consultants showed that support is strong across all age ranges, demographic groups, political parties and religions in the state.

John Sowinski, president of Voters in Charge, the organisation behind Amendment 3, said: “We start in a uniquely strong position. The simplicity of the amendment is its strength.  Amendment 3 asks the simple question, ‘Who do you trust: Florida voters, or the politicians and the lobbyists who influence them?’”

Moreover, the survey revealed that supporters found the messages in Amendment 3 to be more convincing than messages opposed to it. “We are confident but by no means are we complacent,” said Sowinski. “We anticipate the gambling industry and its lobbyists will fight hard against Amendment 3 and we are ready for that challenge.”
