Poll: Do You Want Schneider or Dold?
Take the unofficial, unscientific Patch poll and give us your comments. You get the results Sunday.
With election day approaching Tuesday and the nation’s eyes focused on the 10th Congressional District race between Rep. Robert Dold (R-Kenilworth) and Democratic challenger Brad Schneider of Deerfield, Patch is taking a very unscientific poll.
With very little polling information available to the general public, little is known about the potential outcome of the campaign. What is known is millions of dollars have been spent by the campaigns and outside groups trying to influence voters.
The two contenders have debated once in a public in a forum sponsored by the League of Women Voters, Patch and the Union League Club of Chicago. They have also appeared on television together three times.
The Dold campaign released a poll today from We Ask America showing him ahead by eight points. A few weeks ago his campaign disclosed information showing the North Shore Congressman with a healthy lead. A Huffington Post report today gives Schneider a 4.5 point advantage based on three different independent rating systems.
The internal survey from the Dold campaign and the poll from We Ask America as well as the Washington pundits are in all likelihood scientific in their assessment. We assure you we are not. Our results will be a snapshot of those who wish to participate. Please do.
Sometime after 7 p.m. Tuesday everyone will know the answer. For now, please complete the poll beneath this story by 3 p.m. Saturday and we will publish the results Sunday.
