Tribune poll: Emanuel ahead, one-third undecided

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--A Chicago Tribune poll out on Wednesday put mayoral hopeful Rahm Emanuel in the lead and a lot of voters undecided--with the race for number two wide open. If no candidate wins more than 50 percent of the vote in the Feb. 22 non-partisan primary the top two contenders face off on April 5.

The Tribune poll overall number in the horserace put Emanuel at 32 percent; that compares to an Emanuel campaign poll I wrote about that put Emanuel at 43 percent. The difference, I was told, is that the Emanuel survey included "leaners" and the Trib poll did not.

Here is the Tribune head to head:

32 Rahm Emanuel
30 Undecided
9 Gery Chico
9 Danny Davis
7 James Meeks
6 Carol Moseley Braun
3 Miguel del Valle

The poll: 721 registered, likely voters, taken Dec. 10-13, margin of error of 3.6 percent.
