N.H. chamber poll: Support for casino, Northern Pass
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A survey conducted for the Greater Nashua Chamber of Commerce shows statewide support for a casino and growing support for a controversial power line project.
Chamber President Chris Williams said Monday that the poll taken by the University of New Hampshire found 58 percent of people surveyed want to expand gambling. Most said a casino should be located in the southern part of the state.
The February survey came before last week's House vote against expanding casino gambling.
The survey found 46 people support the Northern Pass electrical transmission proposal while 35 percent oppose it. Support was strong in the south and weak in the north.
The telephone survey of 519 adults was conducted between Feb. 11 and Feb. 19 and had a margin of error of 4.3 percent.
