Bad news for Da Mare's plan for a Chicago casino: only 56% of Illinois voters are against creating a new casino in the state, according to a Tribune/WGN poll. However, opinion from Chicago voters on the matter is just about evenly split, so residents may not yet be ready to completely reject the idea. (City officials might wish to work on the idea carefully, however: 31% of voters said they would vote against legislators who favor casino gambling in Illinois.)
