DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Nearly 70 percent of Iowans oppose legalizing Internet gambling, according to a Des Moines Register poll.

The poll shows 28 percent of people surveyed support the idea. 69 percent oppose it.  Last year, 73 percent opposed the legalization.

Monday, a Senate panel approved a measure that would legalize Internet poker in Iowa.  It now goes to full committee for debate. The bill would let state casinos and racetracks offer Internet poker and would put state gambling regulators in charge.
