He’s been one of the state’s two U.S. Senators for nearly three years… but Republican Mark Kirk remains an unknown quantity to many voters.
A new survey finds 32-percent of voters have a favorable opinion of him… while an identical 32-percent have a negative view.
But 37-percent say they have no opinion of Kirk at all.
Kirk spent more than a year largely out of public view as he recovered from a debilitating stroke he suffered in early 2012.
