Nationwide Poll On Gambling, Marijuana

Online Gaming Gets "Thumbs Down"

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — A new poll finds that Americans are split over whether marijuana should be legalized for recreational use. But the poll finds them solidly opposed to online gambling.

A Fairleigh Dickinson University PublicMind poll released Thursday finds 50 percent of Americans favor legalizing marijuana use, while 27 percent support legalizing Internet gambling in the 47 states that don’t allow it.

Only New Jersey, Nevada and Delaware currently allow Internet gambling, but at least 10 other states are or recently considered legalizing it.

Democrats and younger people showed the strongest support for legalizing pot.

The nationwide poll of 1,151 adults 18 and older was conducted by telephone with both landline and cellphones from April 21-27. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.
