According to a new Chicago Tribune poll Illinois Republicans, like Republicans elsewhere in the country, have lost their ever-loving minds. But it’s close:
Republican Donald Trump leads his three rivals in Illinois’ presidential primary, according to a new Chicago Tribune poll that shows many of the fissures affecting the GOP nationally have come to the Midwest.
The survey, conducted Wednesday through Sunday, also found Trump holds his advantage despite having the highest unfavorable rating of any of the Republican contenders ahead of next Tuesday’s election.
Overall, Trump had the support of 32 percent, followed by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz with 22 percent, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio with 21 percent and Ohio Gov. John Kasich with 18 percent. An additional 7 percent were undecided. The poll of 600 registered voters likely to cast a ballot in the Republican primary has an error margin of 4.1 percentage points.
7% undecided suggests a Trump victory but maybe the millions that are being spent here on a “stop Trump” campaign will have some effect. I don’t have nearly so much of a problem. Next Tuesday I’ll be voting for Bernie Sanders.
