A new poll puts Bruce Rauner ahead of Governor Quinn by eight-and-a-half-points in the race for the state's top job.  Rauner pulls in 45-percent of the support from those polled in the "Reboot Illinois, We Ask America" poll, compared to Quinn's 37-percent.  

 

Rauner leads among women voters, as well as independent and downstate voters.  Quinn has a slight lead in suburban Cook County.  Seven percent of the respondents say they're backing the Libertarian candidate, Chad Grimm.
