  1. As a loyal member of this sunshine blog, I repudiate The New York Times rag as fake news and fake polls…that is, of course, unless roskam gets ahead…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock…

  2. ^That is kind of a trend here, Angel, and it’s disappointing that consistency is too much to ask for in politics. NW Herald, NY Times, Chicago Tribune are “fake news” until they make an endorsement of a Republican, then they’re authoritative and newsworthy…

    Personally, I like NY Times, at least for live election coverage.

    They have really detailed, up to the minute results and good graphics.

    Not sure how good their polls are, but they are trying to call a lot of people which is good.

    I don’t think any single poll is all that helpful, and this NY Times piece admits that.

    You can usually get some sense of where a race is by looking at multiple polls, looking for trends.

    What you consistently see in this district is a competitive race with Casten having a slight advantage, and having built momentum.

  3. By the way, Casten now leads this NYT poll by 3 points, though they’re still only at about half the sample size they want to have

  4. Thank you sunshine blogger for pointing out Roskam is ahead even if he isn’t. This is the kind of timely, accurate, and reliable journalism that makes you a McHenry County institution. Stay tuned…15 days…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock…
