After the Oklahoma Supreme Court threw out a petition to allow high-point beer and wine in grocery stores and gas stations, many took to the internet to share their frustration.

A News 9 exclusive poll shows tremendous support for State Question 792 which would allow full point beer and wine in grocery and convenience stores.

The most recent numbers show 58.2 percent of voters support the change in state liquor laws.

“Of all the state questions we asked, this one had the least amount of undecided,” Sooner Polls’ Bill Shapard said.

Less than 3 percent of voters surveyed are undecided and Shapard said a lot of the 39 percent against the SQ 792 live in more rural areas.

“People in rural areas are the ones that are the most concerned about the passage of this ... not necessarily that they are against the expansion of alcohol beverages in our state, but they are concerned about what it will do on their local community,” said Shapard.

“We are going to lose business. The cost of the refrigeration is really high, not to mention the lost flood space,” said Guthrie’s Gus’s Liquors owner Cyndi Brantley.
