MADISON, Wis. — A poll shows strong support for a new tribal casino in Kenosha.

The Marquette University Law School poll released Wednesday shows 49 percent support the casino while 35 percent oppose it.

The Menominee Tribe wants to build an $810 million casino and Hard Rock Cafe complex in Kenosha. The project is running into opposition from the Forest County Potawatomi Tribe, which has a casino in Milwaukee.

Gov. Scott Walker has not yet decided whether to approve the casino.

The poll shows the strongest support for the casino is in the Milwaukee media market, where 60 percent favor it and 25 percent are against it.

The poll of 815 registered voters was done between Aug. 21 and Sunday. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
