Cygnal, a DC-based polling and analytics firm, recently surveyed 300 likely voters in St. Tammany to gauge their stance on the proposed casino resort at the Lakeshore Marina in Slidell.
Of those asked, a strong majority — 93 percent — said they support allowing area residents to decide if the parish’s longstanding ban on commercial gambling should be lifted. In Slidell, 89 percent said they favored the Louisiana State Legislature and Gov. John bel Edwards (D) passing a bill to place the matter before voters in the next election.
