Illinois Senate: Kirk 46%, Giannoulias 38%

Rep. Mark Kirk's lead in the race for the Illinois U.S. Senate seat has increased moderately as the damage done to Alexi Giannoulias' campaign by his family's Broadway Bank failure seems to be hitting home with voters.

The latest Rasmussen poll reported
:

Kirk now attracts 46% support in Illinois' race for the U.S. Senate, up
from 41% in early April. Support for Giannoulias is at 38%,
virtually unchanged from the previous survey but down from March, when he earned 44% of the vote. Five percent
(5%) currently support some other candidate, and 12% are undecided
