PPP poll: Sheyman up double digits

Written by  David Catanese | Politico

A Public Policy Polling survey paid for by liberal groups supporting Ilya Sheyman shows him leading Brad Schneider by 18 points heading into Tuesday's 10th District Democratic primary.

Sheyman's 45 percent to 27 percent lead is a dramatic swing in Sheyman's favor over just the last two weeks, a change that the Progressive Change Campaign Committee ascribes to the mail campaign highlighting Schneider's past donations to Republicans.

Yesterday, Schneider's campaign called on Sheyman and his "out of state supporters" to apologize for falsely labeling Schneider as a "Blue Dog Democrat" to POLITICO.

PCCC partnered with MoveOn.org to pay for the poll of 629 likely Democratic primary voters between March 11-14.

Details of the poll are pasted after the jump.

Details: 3 IL-10 polls - March, February, January
 

March 11-14, 2012
Public Policy Polling, 629 likely Dem primary voters, MOE 3.9%. Done for Progressive Change Campaign Committee and MoveOn.org

No .............................................................. 35%

CWA devised a simple plan for which they were uniquely suited: drag TPP out of the shadows and into the light - one city at a time - using a medium they understand intimately: Daily Newspapers!

Two CWA members - Dave Felice in Denver, CO and Madelyn Elder in Portland, OR have started the ball rolling. We just need to keep up the momentum leading up to a big day of petition deliveries in January.

Hand Deliver a Letter to your Senators or Representative on the TPP

If your Senator(s) and/or Representative is not currently opposed to Fast Track, they may not completely understand all the implications. Nothing sends a stronger message to a Congressional member than a personal visit to a district office by a voter with a written request. Phone calls and emails are incredibly important but nothing gets attention like a personal visit. Our Educate Congress page has information and a sample letter. Print the letter, sign it, deliver it.
