Poll: Dem Giannoulias Takes Lead Over GOPer Kirk In IL-SEN, Despite Recent Bad News

The pollster's analysis notes that this poll is a piece of good news, given that Giannoulias has been dealing with bad news: "The latest poll comes as Giannoulias is being questioned about his involvement in the failure of Chicago-based Broadway Bank which is owned by his family. Giannoulias, formerly the senior loan officer at the bank, says he hasn't worked there in four years and that the bank is a victim of the crash in the housing market that has hurt other banks."
