I really hope Rauner crushes Quinn. There is no way Quinn is leading by this much.

It terrifies me that a criminal might win reelection.

If you think Quinn is a criminal, your parents committed a crime by bringing you into this world.

Bit harsh there.

And Republicans say God bless Green Party candidates & half the time Florida.

Good thing there isn't one on the ballot. Checkmate!
I meant just in general. The 2010 senate election in Illinois had one. Florida in 2000 for Gore vs Bush had one too. This poll btw has a lot of undecideds.

So your post in a topic about a poll on the Illinois governor's race was irrelevant? Good to know for future time saving.
You know I'm right. How many yeas have Republicans held the governor mansion since 1972? Cook county did its job well in 1998 jk.

No one can understand what you're saying. Shut up or learn English.

I love this thread. This thread truly represents what the Atlas Forum really is about during an election. Just people calling each other idiots and retards and hacks left and right, angered and incensed about the most meaningless of nonsense nothingness. God Bless Atlas.

I really want to see a KCDem v.s. Keystone Phil battle on this one.

He's slightly corrupt - most Illinois politicians are, but Rauner wouldn't be any better.

Nothing in that article is proven, unlike Rick Scott's criminal record.

Maybe calling Quinn a "criminal" was a hyperbolic statement, but he is still slightly corrupt nevertheless.

That I can live with, but every politician is corrupt. In that sense Quinn is not very different from Crist in his "corruption."

It is constitutional to kick a state out of the Union right? (Along with New Jersey, Florida, California, South Carolina etc...)

We'd be better off kicking your joke state out of the Union.

There are two points that stand out in this poll. First is that it's an RV not an LV poll. In Chicago/Cook that makes a difference as RV turnout falls off more in Cook than downstate in the midterm. Second is the partisan breakdown which is 43D-24R, a number that matches the 2008 fall numbers with homestate Obama topping the ticket. That breakdown seems highly unlikely in 2014. It would take a Herculean turnout effort to get close to 2008 values.


Quit pretending this poll has any chance of being accurate. Seriously.

We all know that if a poll showed up where Nathan Deal or Scott Walker was leading by 11 we'd all be refusing to believe it in any way, shape, or form - but when a poll (from a newspaper (!)) shows up showing Pat Quinn (who is arguably in more trouble than Deal or Walker) leading by 11 (after public polling showing him trailing for months upon months, and the most recent internal showing him with only a 3 point lead), it's suddenly the most accurate poll in existence, just because Quinn has a D after his name? Quit being ridiculous. If outliers favoring republicans are inaccurate, then so are outliers favoring democrats (and vice versa).

Needless to say, this poll has no stake in my ratings.
