| No Comments

Chicago mayoral hopeful Rahm Emanuel, the former White House chief of staff, widens his lead in the latest poll, this one taken last week by ABC-7 Chicago News, reports the Chicago Sun-Times Abdon M. Pallasch here.

This is the first public poll where Emanuel has broken 50 percent. If no one gets more than 50 percent in the Feb. 22 non-partisan primary, then the top two vote getters face off in an April 5 general election. Emanuel is in his best position yet to clinch on Feb. 22.

54 percent Rahm Emanuel

14 percent Gery Chico

8 percent Miguel del Valle

6 percent Carol Moseley Braun
