Brady Holds Slim Lead in Illinois

A new Tribune/WGN-TV poll in Illinois shows Bill Brady (R) leading Gov. Pat Quinn (D) in the race for governor, 37% to 32%.

Key findings: "Half of those surveyed disapprove of the sitting governor's job performance in the 19 months since he replaced the scandal-ridden Rod Blagojevich. Only 26 percent have a favorable impression of Quinn. And 70 percent of those surveyed don't like how Quinn has fared on his hallmark issue of reforming government."

"By contrast, four in 10 voters hold no opinion of Brady, a veteran lawmaker from downstate Bloomington. And just 19 percent have an unfavorable view of him."
