“The firm [We Ask America] took those poll results [showing Rauner with a large lead] and then calculated how many votes Sen. Dillard would need from unexpected crossovers to catch Rauner. If it’s a traditional 750,000 voter turnout, Dillard would need 126,060 outside votes to win. If the turnout is 800,000, Dillard would need 135,040 new crossovers to win…”
I love how he describes Big Labor lockstepping Democrat voters as “unexpected” because these votes will be entirely expected from a Democrat special interest that whipped up hysteria and fearmongering about how Rauner was going to unilaterally take away their preciousssssss pensions. With a Democrat controlled legislature, no less.
You don’t have to be brain dead to belong to a public employee union, but if they achieve the goals set out above by electing Dillard we will finally know who controls Illinois government.
