This Tribune/WGN-TV poll shows Hull and Ryan still in the lead, but more importantly it also indicates that most of the electorate remains undecided. So on the Democratic side, it'll be a battle over that remaining 34 percent of likely Democratic voters and with Obama unleashing his first t.v. ads tonight I don't think Hull's lead will continue for too much longer. Name recognition alone doesn't cut it. Obama and Hynes have records to back up their rhetoric. With this domestic abuse allegation quickly becoming the highlight of Hull's record, the next few weeks will mostly be about damage control.
