Poll Shows Mainers Will Likely Reject New Gambling Initiatives
Voters in Maine will likely reject both gambling proposals tomorrow, according to the results of a statewide poll of 722 likely voters by the Maine People's Resource Center.
55.1 percent indicate they would vote "no" on Question Two, which would allow a "slot machine facility at a harness racing track in Biddeford or another community within 25 miles of Scarborough Downs."
66 percent say they will oppose Question Three, which would "allow a casino with table games and slot machines in Lewiston."
Four statewide ballot questions will appear on the November 8, 2011 ballot in the state of Maine. Voters will also weigh in on same-day voter registration and an amendment to the Maine Constitution that would change the years of redistricting the legislature.ShareThis
