Poll shows voters oppose Hawaii casino

Posted: Updated:

The latest Hawaii Poll shows majority support for a state lottery and off-shore gambling, but support for gambling quickly diminishes once the subject turns to an on-shore casino.
 
When asked if they would support or oppose a state lottery, 49% responded in favor while 48% answered by saying they are against a lottery.
 
When asked their opinion on "shipboard gambling" (onboard ships off Hawaii's shores) 51% supported the idea, 46% opposed it.
 
Here is where many of those polled drew the line on gambling.  Sixty-four percent say they are against on-shore casino gambling at one location (34% in favor) and 72% are opposed (25% in favor) to casino gambling in more than one location.
