| No Comments | No TrackBacks


Gov. Quinn has said pension issue is his chief concern this session and while there's headway on managing the $100 billion public pension debt, the public still blames the governor for the state's mess, according to a new poll.
(It should be noted that Democrats control both the Illinois House and the Illinois Senate and at the moment, there are competing pension proposals.)

A We Ask America Poll released today shows the governor has a 28 percent approval rating and 61 percent disapproval with about 10 percent having no opinion.

The automated poll says Quinn's support with Independents is eroding.
