Professional poker players voice their political opinions
August 01, 2016 23:23
In today's online casino news, professional poker players give out some of their political opinions. The recent Democratic National Convention has managed to pick up some of the attention from the world of professional poker players.

Generally speaking, the Democrats want to legalize online poker, while the Republicans want to see it banned. During the DNC, some opinions were raised, and we got to know the mindsets of some of the world's top poker professionals, such as Daniel Negreanu and Doyle Brunson. 

Daniel Negreanu has vocally expressed his liberal political stance in the past. He is known to frequently post political comments on his Twitter profile. To summarize, these are mostly anti-Trump and pro-Hillary. Negreanu is against Trump for a number of reasons, and perhaps the most mention-worthy is the fact that Trump wants to ban Muslims from entering the US, based on the belief that they represent a threat to Western civilization. Negreanu feels that it's just wrong to make these generalizations, as judging the group of Muslims as a whole based on the actions of a few radicals is not the way to go.


On the other hand, Doyle Brunson is a Republican and an avid Trump supporter. During the DNC, he made some harsh remarks directed at Hillary Clinton, mostly criticizing her for not knowing how to handle finances. His comment touched upon Hillary's $20 trillion worth of debt.

In any case, we will probably be seeing a lot more political debates between these poker professionals as time goes by. As things stand, the Democratic and Republican conventions have already come to a close. We can expect both of these political parties to begin their preparations for the big fall debate. The election is scheduled to take place on November 8th.
