CARTERVILLE (Heartland Newsfeed) — Republican incumbent Bruce Rauner may be in more trouble than he thinks in his 2018 re-election bid for governor based on a new poll.
The RA/IBA poll is the sixth poll to include all ballot-qualified candidates, which include Libertarian activist Kash Jackson and state Sen. Sam McCann, who’s running under the Conservative Party banner. McCann received 6.4% and Jackson received 4.3%.
A combined total of 17.3% refused to support a candidate, were undecided or will write in someone else.
The margin of error for the poll was +/- 3.1%. A recap of the poll is included below.IBA_Illinois_Poll_Summary_Data_9-13-18_revised
Three of the four candidates will be participating in the first gubernatorial debate slated for Thursday night on NBC Chicago and most NBC affiliates in the state. Check your local television listings.
As of this publication, there was no announcement that McCann was included in the debate.
