Poll: Ill. Senate Race Tight Going into Final Week

Monday, 25 Oct 2010 01:03 PM


CHICAGO (AP) — A new poll shows Republican Rep. Mark Kirk and Democrat Alexi Giannoulias are about even as they head into their final week of campaigning for President Barack Obama's former Senate seat.

The Chicago Tribune/WGN poll released Sunday shows Kirk with a 44 percent to 41 percent advantage over Giannoulias. But that difference fell within the poll's 3.7 percent margin of error.

A Tribune/WGN poll four weeks ago showed the candidates also about even. But that poll had Giannoulias leading with 38 percent of voters compared to Kirk's 36 percent.

The most recent poll surveyed 700 registered Illinois voters from Oct. 18 to Oct. 22.

It found Kirk gaining ground among independents and suburban Chicago voters.
