Fewer than half of voters polled last week said they'd re-elect Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., according to data released Monday.
Jackson faces former Congresswoman Deb Halvorson in the upcoming March 20th Primary election.
While Jackson has the name recognition -- 96 percent compared to Halvorson's 56 percent -- he's not translating that into votes, Anzalone Liszt Research found.
The results of the polling, conducted Jan. 10 through Jan. 12, gives Jackson a 13 point lead, with the incumbent garnering 48 percent of the vote to Halvorson's 35 percent.
But that means Halvorson is gaining. Polling done in November by Fako & Associates of Lisle showed Halvorson getting just 18 percent of the vote.
The margin of error in last week's polling was +/- 4.9 percent.
