Illinois Senate Kirk (R) 45% Giannoulias (D-Mob Boss) 41%

alexi-giannouliasI’m not exactly excited about Mark Kirk in Illinois. Other than the fact he claims to be a Republican, and would just add to the count in determining a majority, Kirk to me is nothing more than a Mike Castle clone. He voted for Cap and Trade in the House last year, and doesn’t exactly have a strong conservative record. That being said, he still would be better than the Chicago mob boss Alexi Giannoulias (I assume) in the Senate. That’s why the latest Rasmussen poll showing Kirk ahead by 4 points is at least good news. Two weeks ago, the same poll of 750 Likely Voters in Illinois found Kirk leading 44% to 41%. So while Kirk isn’t exactly pulling away, he’s at least minimally increased his lead.

The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Kirk picking up 45% of the vote, while Giannoulias earns 41% support. Four percent (4%) back Green Party candidate LeAlan Jones. Another five percent (5%) prefer some other candidate in the race, and six percent (6%) are undecided.
