ANALYSIS

Bruce Rauner has had a very busy and aggressive first 30 days in office. Tensions are running high in Springfield as he has started revealing some of his yet undisclosed positions. While the politicians don’t seem to like the change in status quo, 43% of voters either approve or strongly approve of his performance as Governor

 

METHODOLOGY

Ogden & Fry strives to increase the accuracy of political polling by measuring voters most likely to vote based on voter history. Voting is a socialized behavior with predictable reliability and consistency.

Ogden & Fry maintains a database with 20 years of voting history. For Governor job approval polls voters are randomly selected from voters who voted in at least 1 of the last 3 elections
