Reboot Illinois and We Ask America released a poll Thursday putting Republican candidate Bruce Rauner ahead of incumbent Governor Pat Quinn by 10 points – 9 points less than Rauner’s 19-point lead a month ago. WROK reports:

Conducted June 10 and 11 by pollster We Ask America, the survey below contains responses from 1,075 registered voters on the broadest question of the election: “If the election for Illinois governor were held today, for whom would you vote?”

Among all respondents, Rauner registered a 10-point lead (47-37, with 16 percent undecided). But Quinn had a commanding lead in Chicago, where his huge showing in 2010 helped him claim victory by a margin of less than 1 percent.

That’s a dramatic drop for Rauner, compared to a May 4 poll by We Ask America, which is affiliated with the Illinois Manufacturers Association, had Rauner up on Quinn by 19 points.

Illinois Mirror‘s May 12 poll conducted by Where America Stands, showed Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner leading Democrat Gov. Pat Quinn by 18 points.
