Ignorant America befuddled by gambling misconceptions

dumbanddumberA poll conducted by Fairleigh Dickinson University shows that two-thirds of Americans believe the law shouldn’t be changed to allow legal online gambling. On the other hand none of those polled knew that there is no actual law in place that makes internet gambling illegal in the US. “The major result of this poll is the exposure of the need for mainstream media coverage of studies like the Harvard Medical School survey which found online gambling to be harmless, so that the public becomes educated and knowledgeable on the subject,” says OCA gaming analyst Sherman Bradley. No shit. You don’t think he’s suggesting Americans are ignorant, do you?
