EDISON - A new poll finds that trying to predict whether New Jersey voters will approve casinos in the northern part of the state is a crapshoot.

A Monmouth University Poll released Thursday shows voters evenly divided on whether to authorize construction of two new casinos near New York City, with 48 percent in favor and 48 percent opposed.

Northern New Jersey voters support the idea, which will be decided by a ballot question in November.

Voters in central and southern New Jersey oppose it.

The ballot measure does not specify locations, but the two most frequently mentioned proposals are at the Meadowlands sports complex in East Rutherford, and in Jersey City.

The telephone poll of 806 adults has a margin of error of 3.7 percentage points.
