Bruce Rauner has a ten-point lead...
Game over? Not necessarily. From a piece in Reboot Illinois (my emphasis):
“History teaches us to not make strong assumptions from these early polls,” said We Ask America CEO Gregg Durham. “Four years ago, Pat Quinn trailed Bill Brady by 10 points in August and fought his way back to win a close victory. Rauner’s lead in the collar counties and downstate is strong and may hold, but Cook County is the real battle ground.”
I found this particularly interesting:
The poll results show a gender gap in the race. Women favor Rauner by four percentages points, while men favor him over Quinn by 20 points.
