A new poll for WBUR shows East Boston is narrowly opposed to a proposed casino at Suffolk Downs.

According to a story posted on the WBUR website, "The survey, conducted by MassINC Polling Group, shows 46 percent of East Boston voters against the project and 42 percent in support. Twelve percent are undecided.''

However, the story says that the poll has a margin of error of 5.6 percent.

The poll surveyed 302 likely voters from October 26-28. That was a week after Caesars Entertainment pulled out of the project, leaving it unclear who Suffolk would partner with if the project is approved.

Voters in East Boston and Revere will consider the referendum Nov. 5.
