Competing Polls

The Chicago Teachers Union thinks Rahm is headed to a runoff, even with Karen the Commie out of the race:
  • A new survey commissioned by the Chicago Teachers Union shows Mayor Rahm Emanuel could be forced into a runoff election folllowing the February primary.

    The data from the survey conducted by Lake Research Partners shows Jesus “Chuy” Garcia inching closer and possibly making the race for mayor tight.

    The survey found that between Emanuel, Garcia, and Ald. Bob Fioretti, Emanuel leads with 33 percent of the vote. He is followed by Garcia with 18 percent and Fioretti with 13.
  • Mayor Rahm Emanuel holds a 19-percentage-point lead in a three-way race against his two top challengers and is within striking distance of avoiding a runoff before spending a penny of his $9 million warchest, according to a new poll conducted for the mayor’s super PAC.

    The poll of 601 likely voters was conducted last week by the Global Strategy Group, whose president Jefrey Pollock has done polling for Priorities USA, the super PAC that helped re-elect President Barack Obama, as well as for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and a host of Democratic candidates nationwide. The margin of error for the poll is plus or minus 4 percent.

    The results are better for Emanuel than the Chicago Teachers Union poll released earlier this week that also shows the mayor short of the 50 percent plus one he needs to avoid a runoff.
Polls showing the desired result for the organization that paid for the poll - must be election season.

A poll will say whatever the group that sponsored the poll wants it to say.

Fioretti will drop out once the deadline passes for new candidates to file. Rahm will then bury Garcia

So the Super Pac that put the worst President in our time in the White House wants to keep Rahm in as the Mayor of Chicago?

Why is this deceitful little nine fingered, carpet bagging hobgoblin still here?

I really don't think you want Garcia as mayor. Just look into how he has stuck his nose into the west side.

If Rahm's PAC is so confident, why is he already running expensive campaign ads on T.V.? Last night I saw the first Rahm campaign ad, and it was anything but impressive. Just showing that arrogant piece of shit annoys every voter in my family. Everyone including my 21 yr. old daughter detests Rahm and his bullshit. "G"

Didn't the polls say Walker and Rauner were going to lose?

Pay attention to the State House 79th district race in Kankakee. The Republican won by 6 votes. Lisa is trying to change that, and daddy is worried about his 'veto proof' majority. Why do you think they suddenly found Rauner's election night voice mail?

Viable? In this City? Why doe he/she have to be a Republican? There is no primary election in the Municipal election for Mayor and aldermen. Democrats and Republicans and Communists and morons all run together and are occasionally members of more than one of the above groups.

Viable here means having a pulse. Karen the commie has brain cancer so she has to concern herself with end of life issues.

There is only Fioretti or Chuy Garcia or Rahm the Terrible. Take your pick.

Any Republican with a brain and any true ability knows that it would be nearly impossible to run this city with the entrenched Democratic City Council, aka The 50 Trained Seals. You think any good candidate wants to deal with Ed Burke and the rest of them? No way.

It amazes me that a very liberal city like NYC had had republican mayors and we will never. Actually, I am not amazed. It is expected since the machine still has death grin on the city and no republican is appointed to a position that allows them to make a name for themselves.

That is why we will never have a republican mayor. No name recognition no votes.

Chicago Teachers Union? The same union that has/is sending/sent teachers to Ferguson Mo to protest Michael Browns death? I don't really care what they say.

In Rham's first TV ad, he's touted for closing a coal fired plant.
That's because it was located in a Hispanic area, one of the weakest ethnic voting groups behind him at present.
Then again, what else can he brag about...crime, pensions, police, taxes, public corruption, et al?

Garcia would be a weak mayor with a strong city council Ald Burke and Occonnor would govern

Vote Garcia
