Polls line up against casino deal
The casino deal is not going down well, two polls say.

The latest Herald Digi Poll on the proposed deal to allow SkyCity Casino more pokie machines and other major concessions, in return for building a convention centre at Auckland, finds 61.5 per cent of those polled disapprove of the deal while 33.8 per cent approve.


The Herald reports Public opinion has turned against the Government's SkyCity international convention centre deal just days before it is due to be signed off.


The results are similar to a HorizonPoll one in October 2012 which found 65% wanted a convention centre, but 57% did not approve of the SkyCity deal.
