CHICAGO - Reboot Illinois and We Ask America released a poll Thursday putting Republican candidate Bruce Rauner ahead of incumbent Governor Pat Quinn by 10 points - 9 points less than Rauner's 19-point lead a month ago. WROK reports:
Conducted June 10 and 11 by pollster We Ask America, the survey below contains responses from 1,075 registered voters on the broadest question of the election: “If the election for Illinois governor were held today, for whom would you vote?”
Among all respondents, Rauner registered a 10-point lead (47-37, with 16 percent undecided). But Quinn had a commanding lead in Chicago, where his huge showing in 2010 helped him claim victory by a margin of less than 1 percent.
