Ill. Gov: GOPs Bill Brady 9 Points Up Over Incumbent Dem Quinn

-By Warner Todd Huston

The Sun-Times is reporting on a new poll showing Republican Bill Brady up nine percentage points over incumbent Democrat Pat Quinn for the race for Illinois Governor. The same poll finds the Senate race deadlocked.

The survey polled 1,000 registered voters:

Brady, of Bloomington, was favored by 38.4 percent of those polled, to 29.8 percent for Quinn.

In the race for the Senate, Republican U.S. Rep. Mark Kirk was ahead in the poll by a negligible margin — 37.3 percent to 36.8 percent for Democrat Alexi Giannoulias.

Naturally, the poll also found that third party candidates have figured little in the race.
