DescriptionChris Kennedy. A poll shows that 53.4 percent of likely voters asked have never heard of him. Respondents were also asked if they would be more or less likely to vote for Kennedy if they were aware of his bloodlines. That basically came out as a wash.

The poll was likely done by Mark Kirk, seeing as how he was tested in one-on-one races against Alexi Giannoulias as well as Kennedy, both of which came up dead-even. Releasing the data may have been done as a message to Kennedy that he would have to dig deep into his deep pockets to make himself known to the voters of Illinois.

This is going to be a fascinating Senate race.

I don't believe that 47% of the Illinois electorate knows who Chris Kennedy is.

No, but they know who the other Kennedys are ;-)

Just because he's named Kennedy, it doesn't automatically follow that he's one of those Kennedys. (I know he actually is, I'm just saying that he could not have been, for all these respondents know.)
