New Jerseyans who oppose expanding casino gambling to north Jersey

Those advocating casino gambling in northern New Jersey have their work cut out for them this November, according to the most recent FDU Public Mind poll.

Only 35 percent of New Jersey voters say they would support a constitutional amendment allowing two counties in north Jersey to each have a casino, in addition to what’s available in Atlantic City. Fifty-eight percent said they were opposed to more casino gambling in the state in general.

The opposition to more casinos held across the board – regardless of gender, political party, level of education, or age. A casino expansion amendment is on the ballot for November.
