Polls Show Tight Race For Hastert Seat
Real Clear Politics ^ | November 17, 2007 | Reid Wilson

The poll, conducted 10/16-18, as Oberweis launched the cycle's first television ads, also surveyed State Sen. Chris Lauzen, Geneva Mayor Kevin Burns and Rudy Clai. A total of 333 Republican primary voters were surveyed for a margin of error of +/- 5.4%.

Primary Election Matchup Oberweis 41 Lauzen 37 Burns 3 Clai 0 Other/undec 19

Fav/Unfav Oberweis 63 / 19 Lauzen 50 / 6 Burns 11 / 6

On the other hand, a separate poll taken last month on Lauzen's behalf shows similar numbers. The poll was conducted by Public Opinion Strategies, Lauzen's long-time pollster, between 10/22-23. 300 likely primary voters were surveyed, for a margin of error of +/- 5.6%. Lauzen, Oberweis and Burns were tested.

Primary Election Matchup Lauzen 38 Oberweis 38 Burns 4

Fav/Unfav Oberweis 63 / 20 Lauzen 55 / 5

In both polls, Lauzen and Oberweis are well within the margin of error for first place. That's good news for both candidates, though both have the ability to drop significant amounts of their personal fortunes into the race.

Jim Oberweis has gone through several metamorphisis during his campaigns for office. He was the establishment RINO in 2002, when he ran for the U.S. Senate.

Chris Lauzen is a consistant, strong conservative. He’s the best choice.

Chris Lauzen has an anger problem and it is a time bomb waiting to happen. It will be exposed soon.

Oberweis has had the vision to expose illegal immigration LIGHT YEARS ahead of anyone else and was demonized for it. He is a visionary who has been willing to take the heat and have a backbone.


The media hates Oberweis and labeled him as a RINO. They misrepresented what he said (So what else is new??))

If you have done any media like I have you know that what the media is famous for.

They hate OBERWEIS because he can’t be bought.
