SHARE Poll: Illinois voters overwhelmingly support term limits

A new poll released by the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute shows there’s very little opposition to term limits in Illinois.

In fact, 61 percent of those polled strongly favor term limits for legislators, while only 17 percent either somewhat oppose or strongly oppose them.

“Regardless of your position on term limits, it’s clear the idea has support,” said David Yepson, director of the institute. “If organizers are able to get the measure on the ballot — and it’s not clear the courts will allow that — it should be easy for them to win approval.”

Here’s a closer look at the results:
