ASBURY PARK - A new poll finds people in New Jersey oppose expanding casino gambling beyond Atlantic City. They also don't want the state to extend tax credits to help the gambling halls.

The Fairleigh Dickinson University PublicMind Poll shows 56 percent of voters surveyed are opposed to casinos anywhere else but in Atlantic City. Thirty-five percent say casinos should be added elsewhere in the state.

When it comes to tax breaks like those received by the new $2.4 billion Revel casino to help it open, 49 percent oppose such state aid, while 41 percent approve.
