A new poll conducted by Capitol Fax/We Ask America, regarding Republican candidate for governor Bruce Rauner's economic plan for Illinois, 53 percent say they'd be more likely to vote for Rauner while just 32 percent said they'd be less likely to vote for him. The plan includes a freeze on property taxes and rolling back the 2010 tax increase. According to RebootIllinois.com, Rauner has struggled with women a bit in polling but they actually like the idea more than men, 56 percent said it made them more likely to vote for Rauner while just 28 percent said less likely. The male split was 47 percent more, 39 percent less. The highest support came from suburban collar counties where Rauner did best in the primary with 66 percent of those polled more likely to vote for Rauner. The split in downstate Illinois was overwhelmingly positive 53 to 27 percent. Governor Quinn's campaign called Rauner's plan phony and false. Illinoisans were split on whether the state can afford Rauner's plan.
