CHICAGO - Yet another poll released Monday shows Republican Jim Oberweis within a "lower than expected" ten points of incumbent U.S. Senator Dick Durbin.
A Gravis poll for the national conservative publication Human Events released Monday shows Durbin with 48 percent to Oberweis' 38 percent, with 14 percent undecided.
If it's true, Durbin's showing - as one of the highest-ranking Democrats in the U.S. Senate - is "not very impressive," Crain's Chicago Greg Hinz said.
The 567 likely voters from Barack Obama's home state were also asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of President Obama’s job performance?” 48% of those polled held a disapproving opinion of the President’s job performance, while 45% ‘Approved’ of his job performance – and 7% of those polled were ‘Unsure’.
