Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and challenger Cook County Commissioner Jesus Garcia

CHICAGO — Another poll on Chicago’s mayoral race reaffirms that Mayor Rahm Emanuel has a comfortable lead over challenger Jesus Garcia.

A poll for the Sun-Times suggests that Emanuel has opened a 16 percentage point lead, 48% to 32%; and that lead has increased with each weekly poll, including a 6% gain in just the past week.

The poll suggests 18% of voters are still undecided; if the poll is correct, Garcia would need to carry all of those undecided voters to win.

Garcia says he doesn’t believe the polls.

    If this is true, it is really unfortunate. It means that Chicago voters will be blessing the robbery of thousands of residents and visitors by the predatory money grab red light cameras that unbiased research shows do NOT improve safety.

    NO government has the moral right to rob safe drivers with these hanging bandits. No voter who cares about safety, fairness, justice, etc. should support them by voting for Rahm Emanuel.
