Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Illinois Senate poll: Giannoulias ahead, undecided the key

| 1 Comment

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee passed along some numbers from their latest Illinois Senate race poll: the contest is still essentially deadlocked, with Democratic Alexi Giannoulias ahead of Republican Mark Kirk. Even with a blizzard of ads on Chicago television--some 15 percent still can't decide.

Other findings: President Obama has a 57 percent favorable in his adopted home state compared to 40 percent unfavorable. President Obama has been in Chicago twice for Giannoulias, Michelle Obama once and Vice President Biden twice. The Giannoulias campaign is counting on the Obamas to help bring out a big African American vote.

The poll was of 601 likely voters taken Oct. 13-17 by Anzalone Liszt Research, Inc. with a four percent margin of error. The DSCC did not show me the whole poll, and just passed along the information below.



If the election for U.S. Senate were held today, for whom would you vote -- Alexi Giannoulias, a Democrat, Mark Kirk, a Republican, Michael Labno, a Libertarian, or LeAlan Jones, of the Green Party?

Alexi Giannoulias ............................................................... 41%

Mark Kirk............................................................................. 36%

Michael Labno ......................................................................... 3%

LeAlan Jones .......................................................................... 4%

Undecided ............................................................................ 15%

3)And what if the election for U.S. Senate were held today, and the candidates were AlexiGiannoulias, a Democrat, and Mark Kirk, a Republican, for whom would you vote?

Alexi Giannoulias ............................................................... 43%
Mark Kirk ............................................................................ 40%
Undecided ............................................................................ 16%
