Poll: Obama ahead of Ryan by 8 points in Senate race
Advertisements [?]
May 18, 2004


Democrat Barack Obama leads Republican Jack Ryan 48 percent to 40 percent in the U.S. Senate race, according to a new Daily Southtown poll of 500 likely Illinois voters.

Previous polls and Obama's internal polls had suggested a wider gap.

Ryan's campaign greeted the results as evidence Ryan is within striking distance; Obama backers expressed confidence that Obama, a state senator who pounded his opponents in the primary, would stay ahead throughout the campaign.

"Now that it's just the two of them and people are paying more attention and getting more information about them, they are seeing that Jack's vision for Illinois is more mainstream," Ryan spokesman Kelli Phiel said.
