Illinois Elections 2010: Pat Quinn Beating Bill Brady 2 to 1 among Hispanic Voters, New Poll Says


(Chicago, IL) – October 22, 2010. Despite a modest job approval ratings amongst Hispanic voters, Governor Pat Quinn is nevertheless winning Hispanic voters by 2 to 1 in the Illinois governor’s race over GOP rival Bill Brady, a new poll says.

Hispanic voters approve of Quinn’s job performance by seven points, 43% approval versus 36% disapproval, according to a new Public Policy Polling survey.

Despite the meager job approval, Hispanic voters support Quinn over Brady 57% to 29%, while independent Scott Lee Cohen is taking 4%; Libertarian Party candidate Lex Green, 4%; Green Party nominee Rich Whitney, 0%; and 7% remain undecided.

However, a post-analysis of the 2006 Illinois governor’s race by Roosevelt University professor Paul Green found that GOP governor nominee Judy Baar Topinka won less than 10% of the Latino vote in two Hispanic wards.

At this point, Brady seems to be dangerously—for Quinn—outperforming Topinka in the Hispanic community.

Stay tuned.

PPP surveyed 557 likely Illinois voters from October 14th to 16th.  The survey’s margin of error is +/-4.2%.
