Florida Dog racing question

On a recent trip to Florida I attended a party where the average age was between 55-75. Lots of registered voters who liked to talk politics. I asked 10 people specifically and individually about the question regarding banning dog racing. So out of the 10, 3 were for banning dog racing and the other 7 were opposed to banning. Obviously a very small sample size here but I found a few things interesting. The 10 people all lived within 5 miles of a dog track. Out of the 7 people who are voting to keep dog racing 5 have not attended or bet on racing in over 10 years. The other 2 bet and visit the dog track a few times a year. I asked the people who haven’t been to a dog track in over 10 years why and most said they lost interest but to them it was a nostalgic thing. They don’t ever plan on going to a dog race ever again. How ironic that there will be thousands and thousands of Florida voters supporting to keep dog racing but never bet a penny or attend the live races.
