DurbinA new poll in the U.S. Senate race shows Republican challenger Jim Oberweis moving a little closer to incumbent Democrat Dick Durbin.  The Reboot Illinois poll conducted by We Ask America shows Durbin leading Oberweis among likely voters by 10-percentage points.  Polls taken in June and July had that gap at 13- and 15-points. 

The Reboot Illinois poll results are in line with a recent Chicago "Sun-Times" poll showing Durbin's lead over Oberweis at a little more than seven-percent.
