Gov. Bruce Rauner (R) has long been down in the polls even before his poor performance in the March Republican primary when he barely won re-nomination. The newly released Victory Communications survey provides no contrary information. According to the data (6/26-28; 1,208 IL likely general election voters via automated response device), Democratic nominee J.B. Pritzker, a billionaire venture capitalist, leads Gov. Rauner, also a billionaire, 45-30%, in a race where combined spending will likely top $300 million for the campaign cycle. Obviously, Illinois is the Democrats’ best national conversion opportunity.
