“The Emerson College Polling Illinois poll of Republican primary voters was conducted May 6-8, 2022. The Republican primary sample consisted of somewhat and very likely voters, n=1,000, with a Credibility Interval (CI) similar to a poll’s margin of error (MOE) of +/- 3 percentage points. The data sets were weighted by gender, age, education, race, and region based on 2022 turnout modeling. It is important to remember that subsets based on gender, age, ethnicity, and region carry with them higher margins of error, as the sample size is reduced. Data was collected using a cellphone sample of SMS-to-web, an Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system of landlines, and an online panel provided by Amazon MTurk.”

  1. That Senate poll is hilarious.

    Vote By Mail ballots start being mailed next week.

    Maybe some of these GOP Senate candidates should try to communicate to voters?

  2. The Senate poll sure is Shaketurd.

    Only 1 candidate is committed to 1 term and has exposed voter fraud and signed a pledge for term limits in the swamp.

    Peggy Hubbard isn’t the one.

    I’ll hold on Salvi comments since Cal is friends with her. LOL.

    See you at Gelatis in a couple of weeks.

    It should be fun.
