A poll of southern Illinois Dems and Reps reveal that Gov. Rauner’s “pro-business” policies lack support, even from conservative areas of the state. As for Sen. Kirk, he’s got trouble, too:

“The only surprise is how many people don’t have an opinion about Sen. Kirk. For a
statewide Republican incumbent to have such ambivalent ratings down here isn’t a good sign for him as he heads into a tough re-election campaign,” Yepsen said.

Kirk “needs to be running well in this area to offset Democratic strengths elsewhere in the state,” Yepsen said.
