    Jordan, be prepared for the well deserved wet noodle lashing from Rich. At a minimum ask.


  2. - Rich Miller - Tuesday, Apr 28, 20 @ 4:03 pm:

    Oh, she already heard from me. lol


  3. - Left of the Lake - Tuesday, Apr 28, 20 @ 4:06 pm:

    hope JB is a subscriber….lol


  4. - Rich Miller - Tuesday, Apr 28, 20 @ 4:07 pm:

    Left, he is and he knows better. Anyway, let’s get to the topic at hand now that it’s out there.


  5. - Ron Burgundy - Tuesday, Apr 28, 20 @ 4:07 pm:

    Not surprised by the JB approvals. Am a bit surprised Trump is polling even that well.


  6. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Apr 28, 20 @ 4:10 pm:

    === Am a bit surprised Trump is polling even that well.===

    When you think about the Eastern Bloc folks and the polarizing this pandemic has caused, he’s still under water. The fact that Illinois hasn’t rallied to POTUS during crisis is a bad political omen for any POTUS.


  7. - Lester Holt’s Mustache - Tuesday, Apr 28, 20 @ 4:11 pm:

    18%. Maybe now the media can stop running continuous stories about a minority of a minority and their anger over their current inability to get a haircut. Possibly provide several days of nonstop coverage to larger groups of Americans, like those who believe that the earth is flat or those that believe the moon landing was faked


  8. - Grandson of Man - Tuesday, Apr 28, 20 @ 4:19 pm:

    Great numbers for the guv. Who gets lost in the controversies are Republican voters who support careful reopening of the economy and stay at home efforts. Who among ILGOP leadership is speaking up and standing up for them? The radical and very unpopular voices need a rebuttal.


  9. - Da Lobsta - Tuesday, Apr 28, 20 @ 4:21 pm:

    Lester Holt’s Mustache needs a lecture from Lester about how news works.


  10. - Linus - Tuesday, Apr 28, 20 @ 4:25 pm:

    I’m not sure where best to leave this comment, so this post is as good as any: Rich, you typically do great work, but you’ve really raised it several more pegs during this COVID pandemic. I’m not sure when, or if, you sleep. Thanks for your tireless effort to keep us well-informed.


  11. - Bored Chairman - Tuesday, Apr 28, 20 @ 4:35 pm:

    Ask again in a week.


  12. - OpentoDiscussion - Tuesday, Apr 28, 20 @ 4:37 pm:

    Ask again in two months.

    By that time the state and nation will have a much better grasp of this issue.


  13. - Rich Miller - Tuesday, Apr 28, 20 @ 4:44 pm:

    ===Ask again in===

    Everyone always wants to find a loophole when it comes to polls. All polls are snapshots in time. So, bite me. If you want another poll, you pay for it.


  14. - West Side the Best Side - Tuesday, Apr 28, 20 @ 4:47 pm:

    Should take it again after Pence went to Mayo Clinic and didn’t wear a mask. If I was a patient there and he’d tried to visit I’d have gotten out of my deathbed to throw him out. What an arrogant (series of banned words and punctuation.)


  15. - Rich Miller - Tuesday, Apr 28, 20 @ 4:48 pm:

    ===Ask again in===


  16. - West World - Tuesday, Apr 28, 20 @ 4:52 pm:

    Just noticed my comment has disappeared?


  17. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Apr 28, 20 @ 5:39 pm:

    - Viola -

    I’m guessing polls you disagree with are often met with “well, they don’t poll me”

    I say that because instead of discussing the results, even if you disagree, the first issue was how you’re not polled.

    Dunno if the benchmark should be if you, yourself, are polled.

    The end.


  18. - Lester Holt’s Mustache - Tuesday, Apr 28, 20 @ 6:42 pm:

    == Lester Holt’s Mustache needs a lecture from Lester about how news works.==

    “It’s all about the clicks, buddy” were his exact words to me


  19. - Mr. Hand - Tuesday, Apr 28, 20 @ 7:00 pm:

    I am curious to see a breakdown in Illinois from Chicagoland to downstate.

    Based on what is making headlines, it seems that there is quite a divide.

    My prediction is most still support the job Pritzker’s doing downstate, but perhaps at a smaller margin.


  20. - In 630 - Tuesday, Apr 28, 20 @ 7:07 pm:

    The polling is bad for the pro-virus crowd. So the continued stunting must be good for fundraising


  21. - Lester Holt’s Mustache - Tuesday, Apr 28, 20 @ 7:20 pm:

    == Based on what is making headlines, it seems that there is quite a divide.==

    I think that the numbers disagree, which is why I’ve been harping on the media coverage of this today. I think there’s a lot of projecting going on in the press, just assuming that this is another left/right issue because it’s a convenient way to frame the story and divisiveness sells. But it really isn’t, and both state and national polling show it. The vast majority of republicans, independents and democrats all support these stay at home orders. At least for now, that may change if this goes on a whole lot longer or if the states opening up don’t see an increase in deaths


  22. - thoughts matter - Tuesday, Apr 28, 20 @ 7:22 pm:

    I would like to know how many of those who approve of the
    Presidents’ handling of this crisis are actually watching, listening and absorbing his press conferences. The internal use of disinfectant was said in the April 23rd press conference.


  23. - Mama - Wednesday, Apr 29, 20 @ 1:53 pm:

    Besides blaming China, What the ‘H’ has Trump done to lessen the Coronavirus outbreak? This is down right scary:

    “Do you approve or disapprove of the job Donald Trump is doing handling the Coronavirus outbreak in the United States?

    Strongly Approve 36%
    Somewhat Approve 12% [48%]”
