Despite continuing poor approval ratings, Governor Pat Quinn is holding his own against the Republicans who want his job in a new statewide survey.
The numbers from Public Policy Polling find only state Treasurer Dan Rutherford leads Quinn in a head-to-head matchup… 41 to 39 percent. Quinn is dead even against both Kirk Dillard and Bill Brady, and has a slight lead over Bruce Rauner.
Rutherford is also the only one of the four GOP candidates with a positive approval rating, although more than half of all voters say they haven’t formed an opinion yet on any of the Republicans. Most voters do have an opinion of Quinn… and it’s not a good one. Only 34% of voters approve of the job he’s doing, while 60% disapprove.
