CHICAGO -- Mayor Rahm Emanuel has a double-digit lead over other candidates in the upcoming mayoral election, but he does not have the 50 percent majority needed to win next month's election outright.
The latest Chicago Tribune poll shows 42 percent of voters support Emanuel.
His closest challenger, Jesus "Chuy" Garcia has just 18 percent followed by Ald. Robert Fioretti with 10%, Willie Wilson with 7% and William "Dock" Walls with 2percent.
However, 20% of voters say they're still undecided.
Emanuel's job approval rating has risen to 44 percent, a 9 percent increase since a previous poll in August.
But when asked if the mayor is "in touch with people like you?", 54 percent of those polled said "no."
