MOST RECENT POLL

Should Connecticut be expanding casino gambling to save state jobs?

Yes, adding at least one more casino makes sense to reduce the business that will be lost to the new Massachusetts casinos.

9%

No, adding more casinos will only create more low-paying jobs and more addicted gamblers.

35%

I am for it if the state gets a large share of the revenue, but not if it means putting more money into the pockets of the tribes.

5%

If the state lowers taxes and improves the business climate it won't need casinos to create jobs.
