Sunday alcohol sales still only issue on which nearly everyone agrees

A recent poll shows that an overwhelming majority of Georgians would like to emulate the rest of the civilized world and buy booze on Sundays. This is shocking, jawdropping, we-landed-on-the-moon type news. From Rosetta Stone Communications:

A new InsiderAdvantage/RosettaStone poll conducted on 3/30/2010 of 281 likely Georgia voters reveals wide support for allowing counties to permit Sunday sales of alcoholic beverages at retail locations.

This survey question is different from the survey conducted in February, as it points out that restaurants and stadiums currently are allowed to serve alcoholic beverages on Sundays.

As expected, the highest level of support was among voters under 30. In that age range 94% of voters approve retail Sunday sales.

Rosetta Stone's posted the crosstabs on its site. Gov. Sonny Perdue, self-described champion of local control, has said every year that he'd veto any bills allowing Sunday alcohol sales — even if counties would have the option to vote on the measure. Perdue leaves office next January.
