Survey Shows Majority of New York Voters Favor Legalized Casinos

According to the poll, only 31% of New York voters opposed legalizing casino gambling and another 68% said such New York casinos would be beneficial for the state’s economy.

Governor Andrew Cuomo has called for the legalization of gambling in the state and is expected to propose changing the state’s Constitution to do so next year. The governor has yet to detail where in the state casinos would be allowed.

A constitutional amendment must be approved by by the public in a referendum and two successive Legislatures.
