Illinois Governor's Race - Brady Pulls Ahead

For the past few months, just about every poll out there showed Senator Bill Brady with a small lead over Governor Pat Quinn in the race for Illinois next Governor.  I have been watching what Google's Insights for Search Tool was showing.  As you can see below, it has been back-and-forth with Quinn up occassionally - which it seems he hasn't been in most every other poll out there.  CapFax has posted a piece from FiveThirtyEight that claims Brady has a 90% chance of winning.

As we get closer to the election, it seems that the Google chart is pointing in that direction, too.  As of mid-September, Brady's taking claim to the Google Insights for Search Governor's Poll.

For the record:

Bill Brady is the Republican (in Red)
Pat Quinn is the Democrat (in Blue)

Here's the chart:


  1. the blurb should indicate who is republican and who is the democrat

  2. good point! I used the traditional party colors - red for the republican, blue for the dem. But...I'll update the post!
