Poll: Illinois Voters Don't Want More Gambling

Fifty-six percent of registered voters surveyed for the Chicago Tribune/WGN TV poll say they oppose increasing the number of casinos, while 25 percent favor the idea. Nineteen percent say they have no opinion.

The poll follows months of debate by state lawmakers over whether gambling is the answer to chronic fiscal problems.

Supporters have been pushing a massive gambling expansion plan as a way to generate $1.8 billion to help fill the state's budget deficit.
