If and when a casino is built in the Capital Region, will people come to gamble there?

There's a new survey out from the Siena Research Institute and Time Warner Cable News.

It says 37 percent of respondents will frequent the new casinos here and elsewhere in the state.

About one in four say someone in their household will apply for a job at a casino.

The survey suggests the biggest draw to a new casino would be concerts, followed by dinner.
