    How the fuck is this even possible?
    Are the voters in Illinois really this stupid or just that racist??

    Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., an Illinois Democrat battling medical and legal problems, has a whopping 31-percentage point advantage over his nearest rival in his re-election bid, a new poll shows.
    The candidate, who has been absent from Congress — and the campaign trail — for months, spent several weeks at the Minnesota medical facility earlier this year.

    Who is his opponent? He or she must be pretty bad.

    Also, I wouldn't follow anyone at Washington Times.

    The opponent is an unknown professor from one of the local universities with very little money. There is very little chance Jackson loses despite all of his issues.
