Kirk takes lead in Illinois Senate race

Republican Mark Kirk, one of Israel's strongest supporters in the US House of Representatives, has taken a four-point lead over Democrat Alexi Giannoulias. Giannoulias is the State Treasurer of Illinois, and acted as banker to convicted felon Tony Rezko, a Syrian-born supporter of both Giannoulias and Barack Hussein Obama. Giannoulias and Kirk are competing for the US Senate seat formerly held by Obama.
The implosion of Alexi Giannoulias (D) continues as a new Public Policy Polling survey shows Rep. Mark Kirk has taken a four point lead in the Illinois U.S. Senate race, 37% to 33%.

The previous PPP poll showed Giannoulias leading Kirk by eight points.

"The main reason Giannoulias is behind is that he's getting only 54% of the Democratic vote while Kirk is winning 77% of the Republican vote. It's not that a lot of Democrats are planning to cross over and vote for Kirk, but 36% of them are undecided right now compared to just 16% of Republicans. That suggests Democratic voters don't really know what to make of Giannoulias' problems right now so they're just taking a wait and see approach to the race."
That's an awful lot of undecideds. Must be all those fellow Jews who can't bring themselves to vote for a Republican. Try harder guys. Kirk's a great one.
