A poll by Governor Chris Christie’s own pollster has shown New Jersey residents are in support of allowing residents to gamble using the Internet inside the state borders. Sent to us CalvinAyre.com by Joe Brennan Jr from iMEGA, it was compiled by Adam Geller and from first glance is more extensive than the one conducted by Farleigh Dickenson PublicMind that showed residents in opposition to online gaming being allowed.


National Research Inc. asked 600 registered voters in the state a number of detailed questions related to online gaming. One of the most pertinent questions that it posed asked Would you support or oppose a bill that would permit internet versions of casino games, such as poker and blackjack for New Jersey residents, provided it was age restricted and regulated by the casino control commission? 65 percent of those that responded were on “total support” with just 29 percent in the “total oppose” camp.
