Latest Poll On Comptroller's Race: Topinka Up 23%, Winning In Chicago
In a new poll of 1290 'likely' Illinois Voters, the firm Communications Express has found that a majority are siding with incumbent Judy Baar Topinka over challenger Sheila Simon.
The margin is 23% with Topinka polling over 50% of the total voters.
More interesting and, frankly, concerning to the Sheila Simon for Illinois Comptroller campaign is that the poll shows Judy Baar Topinka taking 42% of the votes in the City of Chicago and pacing ahead of Simon in the biggest block of Democrat voters.
There isn't a category that Simon tops Topinka and unless Judy implodes here, this thing appears over.
