Pat Quinn, a new Tribune/WGN poll shows. Brady leads Quinn 43 percent to 39 percent and is “increasingly bolstered by the results of independent voters," according to the Tribune.

Bill Brady, Illinois, Governor, Republican, Quinn"That Brady now has a slight lead in the poll indicates a willingness among many voters to seek change during a time of economic uncertainty and go with an unfamiliar candidate rather than a better-known commodity like Quinn,” the Tribune reported.

Brady, who leads Quinn 47 percent to 28 percent among independents, has pledged not to raise taxes and instead cut spending by 10 percent across all programs, including schools. Quinn, who became governor 21 months ago when former Gov. Rod Blagojevich was indicted for corruption, has an unfavorable rating of 41 percent and a favorability rating of only 34 percent.
