Illinois Governor's Race as Viewed Through Google (May Update)

Back in April, Google showed the Governor's race in Illinois as a dead heat.  Both Pat Quinn and Bill Brady were running neck-and-neck.  

Turning to May, it seems that Governor Pat Quinn has regained a bit of ground in the query game and is now running a bit ahead of Senator Bill Brady.  Here's the chart as of this morning.  (click the image to blow it up bigger)
Was the spike for Brady related to his tax return releases? I think public polling is showing Brady a bit ahead, so we'll see if the query volume will match the polls or lag behind.  Check back in June for the next update!
