Illinois Governor Election 2010: Republican Brady 45%, Democrat Quinn 38%


So what’s up in Illinois? In a state that leans Democrat, Republican Bill Brady leads in the most recent Rasmussen poll over Democrat Pat Quinn 45% to 38%. Quinn became governor in Illinois following the impeachment of fellow Democrat Rod “Blagogate” Blagojevich.

Republican State Senator Bill Brady now leads Governor Pat Quinn 45% to 38% in Illinois’s gubernatorial contest, according to the latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in the state.

Seven percent (7%) prefer some other candidate, and 10% are undecided.

It is rather remarkable in a state like Illinois that trends Democrat, the state that President Barack Obama was the US Senator from is having such difficulty backing Democrat Quinn. The present Illinois governor Quinn continues to get low marks for his handling of the state’s budget crisis.

Forty-three percent (43%) of Illinois voters approve of Quinn’s performance as governor, while 56% disapprove, unchanged from last month. This includes nine percent (9%) who Strongly Approve of the job he is doing and 33% who Strongly Disapprove.

Could this be a sign of things to come as well in the US Senate race in Illionis as well between Republican Mark Kirk and Democrat Alexi Giannoulias? The depressed Donkey voter turnout and energized GOP one, even in a state like Illinois, could spell disaster for Democrats in two political races this fall and a black eye for President Obama in his own state.
