Merlin with a new local Illinois Governor Poll……

Hello and morning Dog!

As promised yesterday……. Here is the new Chicago Tribune / WGN-TV Illinois Primary Poll.

Note: The Tribune has only released the Numbers for the Governor Race. Poll Results for the Senate Primaries likely will come during the weekend.

Chicago Tribune / WGN-TV Survey

Illinois Governor Primaries

Democratic Primary

Incumbent Governor Pat Quinn  44 %
State Comptroller Dan Hynes 40 %
Others/Undecided  15 %

Dates Jan. 16-20 / 601 Democratic Likely Primary Voters / MOE 4.0 Percentage Points

Quite surprising that Hynes has closed this. Could be an interesting Night on February 2nd. Quinn could be the first Incumbent this Cycle who could lose his Party Nomination for November.

Republican Primary

State Party Chair Andy McKenna  19 %
Fmr. Attorney General Jim Ryan  18 %
State Senator Kirk Dillard  14 %
State Senator Bill Brady  9 %
Others/Undecided  38 %

While other Pollsters showing Jim Ryan to be the best bet in the General Election I don’t think so. I think McKenna, Dillard or Brady would be better GOP Nominees in the long run.

Full Results can be found here at http://www.chicagotribune.com or here at a later time http://www.wgntv.com

Note:.….Republican Primary Poll……for those who want the link to the WGN-TV poll…..here it is…..link..

Dates Jan. 16-20 / 592 Likely Republican Primary Voters / MOE 4.0 Percentage Points.

The Dog wonders……..is this Brown bump…or is this for real?

  2. Jim ryan would be the worst. He is the past plus he has a case from his Dupage County days which has dogged him for years. He had the wrong man convinted and put on death row.
