Poll: Emanuel widens lead in mayoral race
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.
