He’s one of the most powerful politicians in Illinois… but he may also be one of the most unpopular.
A recent Rasmussen poll says House Speaker and state Democratic Party chair Mike Madigan gets a 65% unfavorable rating from voters around the state. Even Madigan’s fellow Democrats are divided… with 50-percent offering a negative opinion on the Speaker.
Not even Madigan’s home town will rally around him. Columnist Rich Miller reports that Madigan has a 57-percent disapproval rating among Chicago voters… but that’s still better than he does in any other region of the state.
