    Exclusive: New Poll Released 2 Days Prior to Election

    A new poll released two days before the election shows Democrat JB Pritzker leading, with challengers in sight.

    The poll shows:

    Pritzker 32%

    Kennedy 26%

    Biss 22%

    Undecided 16%

    In the Democratic race for Attorney General the same poll shows:

    Quinn 26%

    Raoul 24%

    Undecided 16%

    Drury 10%

    Finally, in the Democratic race for Cook County Assessor:

    Kaegi 42%

    Berrios 32%

    Undecided 14%

    Raila 12%

    A total of 701 were polled in Cook County for Assessor race, with a 3.7% margin of error.

    The total number polled for governor and attorney general were 1204, with a margin of error.

    Victory Research is run by Rod McCulloch who is not aligned with either the governor's race or the attorney general contest and has a thirty year polling track record. McCulloch was convicted of falsifying signatures 10 years ago.

    Victory Research also released poll results for the Democratic governor's contest In February, days after the Chicago Tribune revealed wiretapped conversations of JB Pritzker speaking to former Governor Rod Blagojevich. In the conversation, Pritzker called Secretary of State Jesse White "the least offensive" African American candidate to replace Barack Obama in the U.S. Senate.

    That February poll showed:

    Undecided 27.5%

    Pritzker 27%

    Biss 23.7%

    Kennedy 17.3%

    Then the Pritzker campaign complained the pollster was not credible.
