Anne Arundel voters split on state's largest casino
A new poll suggests a ballot measure affecting the future of Maryland's largest planned slots casino could go either way.
Voters in Anne Arundel County will decide Nov. 2 whether to allow a zoning law to stand that is needed for Baltimore-based Cordish Cos. to move forward with a 4,750-machine casino at Arundel Mills mall. Monied interests on both sides are spending millions to influence the outcome.
Forty-eight percent of registered voters in the county support the measure, known as Question A, while 45 percent say they would vote against it, according to the poll by Gonzales Research & Marketing Strategies. Another seven percent are undecided.
The result falls within the margin of error in the poll, which is plus or minus 5 percentage points.
Gonzales notes that "Question A is being propped up by registered Democrats in the county, as a majority of Republicans and independents are against it."
