New poll by APC Research has Quinn at 48 percent support compared with 37 percent for Rauner, with 8 percent undecided. And 5 percent went to little-known Libertarian candidate Chad Grimm — support that likely would have gone to Rauner if Republican forces had been able to knock the Libertarian Party slate off the ballot.

Comment: This nugget in the poll explains much of what ails Illinois: Regarding Quinn’s NRI and patronage scandals, 56 percent said it makes no while while 30 percent said it would make them less likely to cast a ballot for the governor. Graft, schmaft.
