14th District Watch – Rothenberg Political Report Considers Hultgren-Foster Race “Pure Toss-Up”

State Senator Randy Hultgren on the congressional campaign trail.

Last night The Rothenberg Political Report published an article headlined,

IL14: Hultgren Even With Foster in Own Poll

The 300 likely voter poll showed a statistic tie with Randy Hultgren at 45% and Bill Foster having 44%.

Not a lot of undecideds.

The Terrance Group poll was taken Monday and Tuesday at Hultgren’s behest.

Other polls show Foster with a favorability rating of 40%-41%. Personal ratings for foster were 40%-33%, while Hultgren’s were 22%-4%.

55% thought the district needed a new congressman. The generic Republican/Democrat breakdown was 47%-36%.

Both Bush and Obama carried the district with 55% of the vote in the most recent presidential elections.

Perhaps, southern McHenry County Republicans should be thinking about helping Hultgren south of McHenry-Kane County border.
