Polling for Governor Last Week

April 14th, a pollster called one of McHenry County Blog’s friends in Algonquin.

Here’s my contact’s description of the phone call:

She said she was located in Asia and representing Western Wats. I tried to jot down her questions, not word for word, for you;

1. Will you vote in the Republican primary for IL governor?

2. Is IL heading in the wrong or right direction?

3. Approve or disapprove of the job state legislature is doing?

4. Who would you likely vote for governor? This was her list to choose from;

  • Joe Birkett
  • health care
  • Kirk Dillard
  • Bill Brady
  • Doug Whitley
  • Dan Proft
  • Tom Cross
  • Bob Schillerstrom
  • Ron Gidwitz

5. What issue(s) concern you or you think legislature should focus? She
quickly read off this list;

  • abortion
  • lowering taxes
  • reform and ethics
  • improving education
  • reducing crime
  • family values
  • wasteful state spending
  • Second Amendment rights
  • protecting the environment
  • creating jobs/improve state economy

6. Do you subscribe to cable or satellite TV?

7. Who is your provider?

8. How often do you watch:
MSNBC; daily, few times a week, once a month, etc.,
Fox News; daily, few times a week, once a month, etc.,

How often do you listen to Hannity?
Limbaugh?

10. What year were you born?

11. Are you Evangelical or born-again Christian?

You can pretty well guess that the person paying for the survey research is listed among the names read.
