Poll Shows Sen. Daniel Biss With Lead In Gubernatorial Race

A new poll released by gubernatorial candidate Daniel Biss shows the Senator leading in a hypothetical one-on-one matchup against Governor Bruce Rauner. The poll, conducted by Public Policy Polling, shows Biss 17 points over Rauner, 47 percent to 30 percent, with 23 percent undecided. Billionaire J.B. Pritzker also maintains a lead over Rauner, but a smaller one, at 48-35. The data also shows that both Rauner and President Donald Trump poll extremely unfavorably in Illinois, with just 37 percent of people approving of the President, and 26 percent approving of the governor. “This confirms what we’ve known all along: voters prefer a middle-class governor in Daniel Biss rather than having to choose between billionaires Pritzker and Rauner,” said Biss campaign manager Abby Witt in a press release.
