Chicago City Wire examined 366 primary ballots cast over the past three decades by 68 active reporters, editors and news anchors from leading media in Chicago and across the state.

Nearly nine in 10 (86 percent) ballots cast were for Democrats. Only four of 68 journalists (6 percent) were Republican leaning. And then only slightly.

Comment: Which primary you vote in is a very imperfect index of your politics, but these numbers are sure overwhelming.
