Survey Finds Broad Support for Alcohol Regulations to Keep the Public Safe
Date:4/29/2010

Americans want to keep in place state and local alcohol regulations to keep them safe, according to a new poll conducted by a bipartisan team of pollsters, Whitman Insight Strategies (D) and Wilson Research Strategies (R). The survey showed that 75% of adults support “the rights of individual states to set their own laws and regulations” regarding the sale of alcohol.

Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 29, 2010 -- Americans want to keep in place state and local alcohol regulations to keep them safe, according to a new poll conducted by a bipartisan team of pollsters, Whitman Insight Strategies (D) and Wilson Research Strategies (R). The survey showed that 75% of adults support “the rights of individual states to set their own laws and regulations” regarding the sale of alcohol.

“Americans are united in placing the safety of our children and the character of our communities above the interests of those who wish to deregulate alcohol for their own private business interests,” said James E. Hall, former Chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board, and current member of the Advisory Council at the Center for Alcohol Policy.

“The data on this issue couldn’t be more clear—this support is strong and cuts across party, age, gender, and geography,” said Republican pollster Chris Wilson.

Additionally, the survey found that 83% of Americans are concerned about alcohol produced by foreign-owned companies and think that having state and local control over alcohol is increasingly important.

“With most of the alcohol sold in the U.S. coming from foreign-owned corporations, Americans believe it is even more important to have local control over alcohol sales,” said Democratic pollster Bernard Whitman.

The national telephone survey of 1,000 adults was conducted on behalf of the Center for Alcohol Policy from April 5-7, 2010. The margin of error is +/- 3.1%.
