Latest Poll Shows Judy Baar Topinka Way Ahead of Sheila Simon for Illinois Comptroller

Illinois Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka has a 19-point lead over her Democratic challenger, Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon, according to a new Reboot Illinois/We Ask America poll. 
The poll, conducted July 31 among 1,005 likely voters in the November election and with a margin of error of 3.1 percent, showed that 22 percent of Democratic respondents support the Republican Topinka, who also registered 31 percent among Chicago participants — a strong showing for a Republican candidate. 
“Current State Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka has opened up a 19 point lead, perhaps aided by recent endorsements including one from the powerful Illinois Education Association,” said Gregg Durham, chief operating office of We Ask America. “Nearly 22 percent of self-proclaimed Democrats say they’d vote for her, and she’s enjoying a sizable lead with Independents. Being over 50 percent overall is another indicator of her overall strength. While lots can change between now and November, Ms. Simon has an uphill battle to catch up.”
