MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – If a new stadium for the Minnesota Vikings is to be built, a new poll finds Minnesotans prefer using new forms of gambling revenue instead of higher taxes.

A new Minnesota Poll from the Star Tribune finds widespread support for everything from a state lottery scratch-off game to slots at horse-racing tracks and electronic pulltabs.

Another clear finding is that Minnesotans don’t want to the team to leave. About two-thirds of Minnesotans say that keeping the team in the state is important.

However, 56 percent of those polled opposed using public money while 37 percent favored it.

The poll of 807 adults statewide was conducted Nov. 2-3 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percentage points.
