DARTMOUTH – Most Massachusetts residents support a proposal to establish casino gambling, driven by a belief that gaming halls will deliver tax revenue and jobs to the commonwealth.

A University of Massachusetts Dartmouth poll released Sunday says that 56 percent of residents support a proposal by Gov. Deval Patrick and leaders in the legislature that would authorize three “resort casinos” and one slot parlor through competitive bidding.

The survey of 552 residents found that 56 percent supported the proposal, 31 oppose it and 13 percent were undecided. The survey, conducted by the university’s Center for Policy Analysis, had a margin of error of 4.1 percent.

Strange Random Gambling Quote:

Someone once asked me why women don’t gamble as much as men do, and I gave the common-sensical reply that we don’t have as much money. That was a true but incomplete answer. In fact, women’s total instinct for gambling is satisfied by marriage. – Gloria Steinem
