We Ask America (1/28-30; 811 IL likely Democratic primary voters) surveyed the Illinois electorate, as they often do, this time to test the upcoming Democratic gubernatorial primary. The ballot test results found venture capitalist J.B. Pritzker leading the pack of Democratic candidates. He posts 29.8% support, while state Sen. Daniel Biss (D-Chicago) trails with 17.4%, and businessman Chris Kennedy, son of Robert F. Kennedy, places a weak third with 11.5%. Mr. Pritzker has been spending heavily on television in preparation for the March 20th primary election, so it is of little surprise that he has established a polling advantage. So far, Mr. Kennedy, in his first run for office though hailing from his famous political family, has posted disappointing numbers.
