A poll released on Monday finds the positive wording of a November ballot amendment to expand gambling in New York State is influencing voters. The poll finds a majority of New York voters support the amendment.
Anti gambling activists took a sledgehammer to a slot machine in front of the New York State Capitol on Tuesday. The activists were demonstrating against a ballot amendment to legalize gambling casinos in New York.
A question on the November ballot will ask New Yorkers if they support an expansion of casino gambling in the state. A new poll finds the language in that ballot question is written in a way that influences voters to vote yes.
