Poll: Support for Ohio Slots is Fading
As reported by the Cleveland Plain Dealer: "Half of Ohioans say they don't like either of two proposals to set up slot machines here, meaning slots backers face a costly, difficult battle to turn the tide. "A Plain Dealer poll shows that only four in 10 respondents favored the two proposals to open slots parlors in Ohio. Half were against, with the rest undecided. "The poll of 625 registered voters was done this week by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research Inc. of Washington, D.C. The poll's margin of error is plus or minus 4 percentage points.
"The results show that the state's slots supporters need to unify their dueling campaigns and focus their resources for an uphill fight, observers and gambling proponents say."
