Greenberg Quinlan Rosner conducted a statewide poll among likely California voters on behalf of the California Tribal Business Alliance (CTBA) which assesses public attitudes towards Indian gaming and issues related to it. The results show that the public continues to support Indian gaming in general, but voters do not appear to have much of an appetite for significantly increasing any type of gambling in California.

This memo is based on a Greenberg Quinlan Rosner survey conducted for the California Tribal Business Alliance June 28- July 2, 2007. The survey, of 810 likely voters in California, has a margin of error of +/-3.5 percent. 


Key Findings

  • A majority of Californians remain supportive of Indian gaming.
  • Nearly three quarters of voters oppose the idea of allowing Indian gaming operations outside of Indian reservations.
  • There is strong opposition to radical changes to the California State Lottery. Voters do not want the lottery privatized.

"Half of California voters would vote yes on an initiative to allow Indian gaming if it were on the ballot again while slightly more than a third would oppose such a measure."
