Poll: Most Maryland Voters Want Sports Betting

Washington Post poll conducted in Sept. 2017 showed that 55 percent of respondents approved of legalizing sports betting with only 33 percent disapproving — the highest level of support ever recorded by the Roper Center public opinion archive.  

Now a brand new Post poll surveying Maryland registered voters found numbers in line with the national figures — 53 percent are in favor of legal sports wagering on professional sports, against 37 percent opposed (10 percent had no opinion).

Unfortunately for those Marylanders approving and also desiring to make legal sports bets, they’ll probably be waiting more than two years to do so within Maryland borders.
