ATLANTIC CITY - Opponents of a plan to build two new casinos in northern New Jersey are continuing their campaign against it, even as polling shows the measure is unlikely to pass.

On Monday, the lobbying group Trenton's Bad Bet released four new TV and radio ads against the proposal, which will be on the November general election ballot.

The referendum asks voters whether to approve new casinos near New York City, but does not specify where or what tax rate they would pay.

The ads all assert that north Jersey casinos would kill 30,000 jobs, citing a study by south Jersey foes of the plan.

They come days after a new Stockton University poll finds the plan is supported by only 27 percent of voters statewide, with 68 percent opposing it.
