What’s the state of the race in the Illinois 10th? Depends which poll you believe


Who is on top in the hotly contested congressional race in the Chicago suburbs between Rep. Robert Dold (R-IL) and his Democratic challenger Brad Schneider? It depends on which poll you consult.

The Highland Park Patch notes that different polls yield different results:

A survey released Thursday by the House Majority PAC, a Democratic super PAC, and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) shows Dold and Schneider tied while the North Shore Congressman’s internal numbers have him 10 points ahead.

The Schneider campaign’s own internal polling released two months ago also showed a dead heat.

Dold has stressed his pro-Israel record, while Schneider has been a leader in pro-Israel advocacy and in the Jewish community.
