IL-Gov: Yikes! Blago Looking Weak

Posted by DavidNYC

A new poll from Rasmussen (likely voters, no trendlines):

Blagojevich: 37
Topinka: 48
(MoE: ±4.5%)

Judy Baar Topinka is the GOP's strongest candidate, but she still has to weather a primary before she takes on incumbent Dem Gov. Rod Blagojevich. Nonetheless, this poll looks very bad for Blago. Of course, it's just one survey and we don't have trendlines, so I'm not about to start wigging out. But given how devastated the IL GOP is, it's sad to think that this seat might be in any danger at all.

Ugh. Let him swing. Sorry to be such a downer, but Blago might not be worth saving, in my book. Not that I know where it's going to go, but he's lost my sure vote, and I'm pretty much a down-the-ticket Dem.

He seems to have taken over the GOP corruption machine and just spun it his way. I also think it was downright cowardly to refuse to debate his primary opponent. (Yes, a matter of strategy: but I'm a voter in Illinois, not a strategist.)

I'm not sure I'd vote for Dame Judy over him--I think she's more of the same--but I'd consider Gidwitz (not that he's going to win the GOP primary).

Yeah, the seat is in danger. The Illinois GOP is in worse than a shambles, but that tells you how bad off Blago has made himself--and he has done this entirely to himself.
