Ohhhhhh Dearie: GOP Poll Puts Kirk Up Twelve Points Over Mob-Connected Mobbed-Up Mob-Banker Giannoulias

AHFF Geoff tips:

Magellan Strategies for Mark Kirk (R) 2/2/10; 885 likely voters, 3.3% margin of error Mode: Automated phone (Magellan memo)


2010 Senate
Kirk 47%, Giannoulias 35%

Favorable / Unfavorable
Mark Kirk: 31 / 26
Alexi Giannoulias: 24 / 39
Barack Obama: 51 / 45

I didn't get a chance to congratulate our next Senator from Illinois Mark Kirk on his primary win. I'll do so now -- congratulations.

And yes, he's a bit of RINO on social issues, but he's in the National Guard and served (briefly) in Afghanistan recently and has apologized for his cap-and-trade vote and, well -- I don't care. Better a RINO than a corrupt Chicago machine mobbed-up Obama/Rezko crony.

I don't even want to hear from "RINO." I mean, you can talk about it if you want, but I just have no desire personally to discuss it. The choice seems pretty clear to me. The primary demonstrated that Kirk was as conservative a viable candidate as Illinois' Republicans were comfortable with, which tells me that's as good as it's gonna get, pretty much.

And on that: Corruption is going to be a big theme in this short race. Even Illinois can't help but notice the stink of it any longer.

To that end, the GOP has produced this ad, which is funny, true, and devastating:
