Chicago Ald. Toni Preckwinkle has jumped ahead in the Democratic primary for Cook County Board president, according to a Chicago Tribune/WGN-TV poll, published today. The former school teacher, whose aldermanic ward includes the Chicago residence of President Barack Obama, the poll notes, “has become better known and liked among suburban voters.”
The same poll shows incumbent board president Todd Stroger diving to dead last, with only 11 percent of those in the poll saying they would vote for him if the election were held "today."
Cook County Circuit Court Clerk Dorothy A. Brown has dropped to second place in the poll, while Terrence J. O'Brien, president of the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago, places third.
