The Sun Times has some poll numbers
Poll: Obama ahead of Ryan by 8 points in Senate race: "Democrat Barack Obama leads Republican Jack Ryan 48 percent to 40 percent in the U.S. Senate race, according to a new Daily Southtown poll of 500 likely Illinois voters.
Previous polls and Obama's internal polls had suggested a wider gap."
-- Different numbers than we have seen before, at this point with all the play Obama got right after the primary I think we can overcome 8 points. This race is still very much in play.
