New polls suggest the Republican race for governor is tightening… and that Governor Pat Quinn will have his work cut out for him, no matter which Republican opponent he faces.
The latest Chicago Tribune survey still puts Bruce Rauner in the lead… but suggests state senator Kirk Dillard is closing the gap.
But the poll still gives Rauner more than a 10-point edge over Dillard, with just days to go till the primary. Meanwhile, Quinn’s general election support remains soft, even among his own party.
A separate survey finds that fewer than half of Democrats say they will vote for Quinn in the general election, no matter who’s running against him.
