    And the article accompanying the poll, "Online gambling still in the cards?
    Loopholes in law aimed at ending Internet betting may render it ineffective", amazingly got it right ......

    Read the rest of the very interesting article at You must register/login in order to see the link.

    That was one of the best articles I have seen on this subject because it addresses specifically how the bill leaves the door open for legislation to allow intrastate online gambling sometime in the future, and how there is already a plan to introduce such measures next year (thus it might be important to start expressing support for online gambling, althought the WTO would seriously hurt our chances of that passing in my opinion).

    Have you seen the results???

    Holy !!!

    The numbers are amazing...

    It seems that everyone thinks online gambling shouldnt be illegal.

    Is this a good thing?

    Or regardless what people thinks those morons are still going to do what ever they want??

    Does public opinion still counts in the US? Is this country still a democracy???

    2480 responses already - and a 94 percent approval for online gambling. This may not be "scientific" but it sure gets a message across to me.

    Spread the word, folks - this, like the WSJ survey is a great opportunity to make a public point in the mainstream media.

    Now 2821 responses.

    TB, afraid I no longer have the WSJ link - this was a similar poll taken some months back where a large number of respondents opposed the concept of outlawing online gambling.

    I think 90% comes out of what you'd call in the world of statstics a biased sample becuase it's not random, but I still think probably it would be a majority who say yes... the religious right has been bullying the hell out of us for decades now, and they are a minority.

    They win becuase they are an orgainzed, highly motivated, and very vocal minority with a clear agenda that votes on all levels reliably.

    The problem here is that I'd say a majority of online gamblers probably vote for the GOP due to other issues (taxes, trade, etc.) so the gambling community is quite divided. If they all started voting Democrat suddenly, I think things would change, but I don't think this will shift many Republican votes... or am I wrong?

    What say the Republicans here? Willing to go Democrat over this? Vote for Gore or Hillary?

    If Bill Bradley runs, I vote Democrat. Otherwise, I abstain.

    However, if I vote in State elections, you can be damn sure I will be checking the roll before I vote.

    I agree that this is one of the best news articles available to the public that I have read on this subject yet.

    Many articles say "congress has passed a law banning internet gambling" and I even read one article yesterday that said, "The online gambling sites have lured their fair share of gullible gamers, but does the government have the right to monitor what people do in their own homes?" The overall point is good but is rendered useless by the misinformed implication that all online gamblers are gullible.

    When democrats get their $hit together and behave like the pro Americans they were in the 70'-80's the maybe I would take a look at them. But to vote for someone like Hillary over an online gaming issue??? No thanks!

    Yeah, that's what I figured when I tell people that support for gaming is a mile wide but an inch deep. You don't find much mention of the "online gambling vote". I'm not even sure mainstream Demoracts are big supporters of legalization it's more like liberal wing like John Conyers.

    So, no on Gore and Hillary... I guess Ralph Nader is totally out of the question then... :D

    I will abstain before i vote for a democrat. At least the ones being bandied about as candidates.

    I have already decided i will not vote until after the 2008 Presidential elections.

    Don't waste your vote by abstaining, Ok fine you don't like Republicans, Democrats, Independents, Libertarians, Green Party etc.... For the first time in history pick someone you want to be elected and dont' pay any mind to whether or not it's impossible that they will be elected. Show them that people vote and they will have to please you sooner or later. Don't abstain.

    If people want to play online, then they should. It's their choice, they are adults after-all. I thought as Adults we had the freedom to choose, but some politicians think that adults cannot be trusted to make decisions. Nice to live in a democracy!!!! :rolleyes:

    Nobody if forcing me to play online, I choose to!!!! It's that simple, this is what I want to do. It appears that a majority of people share this same sentiment. Maybe it might be because we are able to make our own decisions....HOW DARE WE!?!?!?
