Selle: Gov. J.B. eclipses low poll results with all the right moves

What’s a guy need to do to get a little respect in the State of Illinois? Gov. J.B. Pritzker might be asking himself that following results of a recent poll.

Pritzker, who seems to be doing everything right during his first quarter in office, was trumped by President Trump in the poll conducted by We Ask America released last month. Illinois voters are a tough crowd, but Trump being more popular in a deep blue state than a Democrat governor who trounced his GOP opponent in November? Hmm.

The poll asked 800 statewide voters about the freshman governor’s job performance. The survey found 37% approving of his short time in office and 36% disapproving.

Astonishingly, Trump received a 41% approval rating, while Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan, D-Chicago, who also is chairman of the Democratic Party of Illinois, ended up with only 18% of those surveyed having a favorable opinion of him. Even among Democrats, Madigan had a mere 26% favorable rating.
