MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – A new Star Tribune Minnesota Poll finds 72 percent of adults surveyed want to end tribal monopoly of casino-style gambling in the state.

The Star Tribune reports the poll found 23 percent believe American Indian tribes should continue to have exclusive rights to operate casino gambling facilities in Minnesota, while 5 percent didn’t know or refused to answer.

Minnesota has 18 American Indian-run casinos around the state.

Lawmakers are looking at proposals that would expand gambling to bars, race tracks and a downtown Minneapolis casino, as a way to bring in more money for state and local governments.

The poll of 806 Minnesotans, including land-line and cellphone users, was conducted May 2-5. It has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 4.7 percentage points.
