ANALYSIS
Bruce Rauner has had a very busy and aggressive first 30 days in office. Tensions are running high in
Springfield as he has started revealing some of his yet undisclosed positions. While the politicians dont
seem to like the change in status quo, 43% of voters either approve or strongly approve of his
performance as Governor.
