The 22 percent of respondents who are undecided is high, and means Rauner still does not have the name recognition as the governor, said Doug Kaplan, the president of Gravis Marketing.
In response to the poll, Rauner spokesman Mike Schrimpf told to Human Events this week that he is not surprised by the poll results, and that focus is key to the Rauner campaign.
“Bruce is completely focused on four major issues that unite Republicans, Democrats and Independents,” he said. “He wants to bring a booming economy back to Illinois, deliver value for tax dollars, ensure world class schools and enact term limits on the career politicians in Springfield.”
Kaplan told Human Events that respondents were also asked: “If the 2016 election for U.S. Senate were held today, and the candidates are Sen. Mark Kirk and First Lady Michelle Obama, who would you vote for?”
Obama was the choice of 47 percent against the GOP incumbent Kirk’s 42 percent.
