Kirk and Giannoulias Neck and Neck: Poll
FOX Chicago News
Chicago - A newly released poll is reaffirming just how tight the state's U.S. Senate race is.
The poll from Rasmussen Reports shows that Democrat (Greek - American) Alexi Giannoulias may be inching ahead of Republican Mark Kirk.
Of likely voters surveyed, 42 percent favored Giannoulias and 40 percent favored Kirk.
However, that's still within the poll's 4 percent margin of error, so the race is still a toss-up.The 750 likely voters in Illinois were polled on Monday.
