A Rasmussen Poll of 500 likely Illinois voters conducted October 13th asked:
How do you rate the way that Rod Blagojevich is performing his role as Governor? Excellent, good, fair, or poor?
1% Not Sure
Not a single respondent judged the governor's performance "excellent." Statehouse chronicler Rich Miller, who first cited the poll in his Capitol Fax, compared the numbers to last month's poll and found Blagojevich's "poor" rating rose five percent, from 60 to 65, and that he rated below President Bush, who notched an "excellent" rating of 10 percent.
