Poll: N.J. residents split on gambling outside Atlantic City


New Jersey residents are closely split on allowing casino gambling outside of Atlantic City, according to Fairleigh Dickinson University's PublicMind poll.

About half oppose an expansion, while 42 percent favor it, with a slight preference for a casino in the Meadowlands over one at Monmouth Park Racetrack.

The remaining 8 percent either had no opinion or declined to participate.

The poll was based on interviews from July 14 through July 21 with 819 New Jersey residents 18 and older. The poll had a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percent.
