Illinoisans are split on the question of gambling expansion.
A new Chicago Tribune survey finds 47-percent of state voters are against the plan to create new casinos and add slot machines at horse racing tracks, while just 43-percent support the idea.
That gap is within the poll’s margin of error. Residents of Chicago... which would get its first casino under the proposal... were against the expansion, but downstate residents supported it, 47-to 42-percent.
While 51-percent of men were in favor of the gambling bill, only 36-percent of women supported it.
Governor Quinn vetoed the gambling expansion bill in August, but lawmakers still have a chance to override.
