Brady, 50 percent to Quinn, 37 percent in new Rasmussen poll

| No Comments

A Rasmussen poll released Monday shows GOP Illinois governor nominee state Sen. Bill Brady widening his lead over Gov. Quinn. The poll shows that the Green Party candidate, Rich Whitney, could be a spoiler for Quinn. The poll did not include Scott Cohen, who is using his own millions of dollars hoping to leverage the bad press he received after he won and gave up the Democratic lt. governor nomination in February.

Below, from Rasmussen......
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state, with leaners included, finds Brady picking up 50% of the vote, while Quinn earns 37% support. Green Party candidate Rich Whitney, included for the first time in a Rasmussen Reports survey of this race, earns just four percent (4%) of the vote. Seven percent (7%) prefer some other candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided.

Late last month, when leaners were included in the totals, Brady, a state senator, held a 49% to 41% advantage over Quinn.
