One poll has GOP challenger Bruce Rauner with a 6-point lead while another one has Gov. Pat Quinn with a 2-point edge.
A poll released Thursday by Dan Proft for Liberty Principles PAC and conducted by Fabrizio Lee, shows Gov. Pat Quinn has a 41-39 edge over GOP challengers Bruce Rauner. The poll, which was conducted via both landline and cell phones has a 4-percentage point margin of error.
These results are in line with a Rasmussen poll released Tuesday that also had Quinn with a slight edge within the margin of error, at 44-42.
However, a GOP poll, conducted among 1,290 likely voters released Wednesday by Communications Express has Rauner with a 43-37 edge over Quinn. That poll has a margin of error of +/- 2.9 percent.
