US Politicians Ramp Up Online Poker Support

October 30, 2019

A major election year is looming on the horizon for the US. 2020 will see races decide important senate seats as well as the President of the United States. Some of those running have come forward to proclaim their support for online poker and online casinos.

Among those who are most in favor of online poker is outsider Andrew Yang. Yang recently stated on Twitter that he would support online poker legislation in all fifty states. Yang has also said that he believes individual states should be allowed to make their own decisions about online poker.

Today online poker is legal in five US states. These are Nevada, Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. It is interesting to note that the first three states have had legalized online poker for a few years now. The online poker providers in those states have not necessarily seen widespread support. Some argue that this is because those in these locations have more access to actual physical poker rooms.

Yang and other politicians have said they want states to benefit from the revenues that are generated by online poker. Yang's personal platform also calls for some of those revenues to be directed toward addiction programs for problem gamblers.

Many poker professionals were quick to come out in support of Yang's statements. Yang has thus far managed to muster minimal support in the presidential race. It is possible, however, that his views on online poker could spread to other candidates who want to capitalize on issues that interest voters.
