The Fairleigh Dickinson/PublicMind poll out today finds voters split on a series of proposals regarding New Jersey's casino, racing and entertainment industries.

Fifty-six percent say it's a good idea to privatize racetrack operations.

However, 48 percent say state intervention in Atlantic City is a bad idea; 38 percent support it.

By a large margin, voters oppose state aid to complete the Xanadu entertainment complex in the Meadowlands.

The telephone poll of 801 registered voters was conducted July 27-Aug. 2. It has a sampling error margin of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
