The lottery's poll numbers

Posted By on Mon, Jul 20, 2009 at 6:29 AM

Roby Brock's Talk Business has embarked on polling of policy and other issues. First up, the lottery. He emphasizes the 32 percent who hold strongly unfavorable opinions about the lottery. CORRECTION: I misread the numbers in the early morning fog. Favorable responses prevailed 49-40, with 11 undecided or not answering, which is less than the support the measure enjoyed at the election. I still think voters want Powerball and would approve the lottery again tomorrow if asked. But there'd have to be some corrective PR in the campaign.

 Looking for explanations of Gov. Mike Beebe's emergence as a strong critic of high lottery pay? Look no further than the question of whether people think Ernie P.'s pay is too high. 71 percent strongly agree that it is. Another 10 percent merely agree.
