Schneider Tops Dold in Patch Poll
As Dold and Schneider greet as many voters as they can, a tiny fraction of those who will vote Tuesday responded to the Patch poll first published Thursday, Democrat gets 57 percent tally.
With perhaps one tenth of one percent of the electorate weighing in, Democrat Brad Schneider received 57 of the 135 votes cast in a highly unscientific Path Poll while Rep. Robert Dold (R-Kenilworth) got 40 percent in the contest for the 10th Congressional District Seat.
Three respondents wanted someone else.
Scientific polls taken in this race have used a sample size ranging from 400 to 1,275 people. Those surveys showed results from a dead heat to an 11-point lead for Dold.
Meanwhile, Dold and Schneider spent Saturday contacting as many voters as they could. Dold continued touring the District by bus stopping in Northbrook, Mundelein, Vernon Hills, Grayslake, Highland Park, Park City and Wheeling.
Schneider met voters at restaurants and other places in Highland Park, Northbrook, Fox Lake, Niles and Lincolnshire.
