Survey Says! Most People Just Don’t Care

"You can play online, just leave me alone" say most Americans.

Look, F5 isn’t the place to get deep about the new survey conducted by Online Poker Report, which asked 1500 Americans about their stance on regulated online poker. So, if that’s your deal, we encourage you to check out the full breakdown of the stats over at that fine site.

We bring it up because the holidays are coming up and we think that 100% of our readership in the US will have to defend their love of poker at some family outing or perhaps—and this is just an example—explain why they’re ducking out on Christmas eve morning to go play a $125 re-entry at Bay 101 in San Jose.

Now, when that time comes, you have something to point to when you say “actually, MOM, most Americans are NOT opposed to online poker!”—because they’re just not.

In fact, while the study shows that the majority of those who are opposed are “strongly opposed” (29.1%), for the most part people are “neutral” (aka 33.7% of respondents just don’t give a $#!+). Even better, almost 20% of those who responded “strongly supported” the idea.

So, again, the statistically significant survey is pretty pro online poker and if you are an advocate of the game, it’s well worth taking a look at it and sharing it around as OPR did a nice job with it.
