A survey conducted by the company Rasmussen Reports revealed that a majority of Americans support the legalization of gambling. The study was conducted by telephone on a sample of 1,000 US.

The research results reveal that 52% of Americans considered positive the presence of a casino in their state, while only 37% of them oppose this idea. Despite 57% of respondents agree that casinos have a positive impact on local economic development, 50% of respondents said that gambling has a negative global impact. Over two-thirds of US respondents, 71%, however, admits that he played in a casino game.

Another survey conducted in June by the same company had revealed that 44% of Americans believed that online casino games were to be legalized, while 37% claimed that the games would have to remain illegally.

Other US states are seeking possibilities for the gambling license, a very productive business despite the crisis.
