Illinois 2010 Elections: “There may not be a state in the country where Democrats have a weaker top of the ticket at this point than Quinn and Giannoulas.”


(Chicago, IL) — April 6, 2010. Here’s an SOS to the Democratic Party of Illinois: Democrats are likely to lose the Governor’s office and the U.S. Senate seat.

Think about that for a moment.

“There may not be a state in the country where Democrats have a weaker top of the ticket at this point than Quinn and Giannoulas.” today wrote Tom Jensen of Public Policy Polling.

How are them apples?

Alexi Giannoulias has given up an earlier 42-34 lead over Mark Kirk. Kirk now leads him 37-33. And Quinn’s approval rating is 25/53. Yikes. According to Jensen, a candidate with those numbers “seems like a pretty good bet to be defeated.”

And President Barack Obama is no big help. In Illinois, 50% of voters approve of the job he’s doing to 42% who disapprove.

Public Policy Polling, which The Wall Street Journal ranked as one of the top swing state pollsters in the country last year, will have the full, ugly story on Quinn’s numbers tomorrow, Wednesday.

Thanks to Rich Miller at Capitol Fax for the head’s up.

Stay tuned.

  1. Just curious. Is there anywhere in the country that has a weaker Republican slate top to bottom?

  3. GOP House bteetr not even think about holding a vote on more state bailouts. This is a critical thing they must stand firm. We need the states that have pursued socialist policies to feel the pain of those decisions.
