SHARE GOP governor poll: Rauner maintains solid lead

The final GOP governor poll before Tuesday’s primary from We Ask America shows Bruce Rauner is maintaining a solid lead over the rest of the pack, but also breaks down how many crossover votes Kirk Dillard would need to beat Rauner.

The poll was taken with 1,126 likely GOP voters and has a margin of error of +/- 3 percent:

But could Dillard catch Rauner? He could, but Dillard needs a stampede of crossover votes to do it.

For example, if a turnout of 750,000 voters would require Dillard to grab 126,600 crossover votes. And if turnout hits 800,000, he’d need 135,040 crossover votes, based on We Ask America’s calculations.
