PALMER, Mass. (WWLP) - A new poll suggests a solid majority of Palmer residents support
a proposed casino in their town.
The survey by the UMass Dartmouth Center for Policy Analysis found 60 percent of Palmer voters are in favor of a casino to town.
The survey showed strong support among people of all genders and age groups and all political preferences.
Despite the fact that casino gambling isn't yet legal in Massachusetts, the Mohegan Tribe has proposed building a casino on Thorndike Street right off the Mass Turnpike.
