     Kirk's performance in the poll is respectable, though 10% undecided at this juncture is a bit distressing for him.

This race is rather infuriating. Will these undecideds ever make up their minds? A solid chunk appear to be minorities, which bodes well for Giannoulias, but I don't see either candidate winning by more than two or three points come election day.

It will come down to who has the best turnout. Those undecideds should shift some time in the next week.

Of course, it's possible that many of the undecideds won't vote at all.

Well, this poll has him at 45-51 in Illinois, so that might not go as well as you might think.

That's where he's at nationally, so that's not especially believable.

Not entirely.  The Midwest has swung against him harder than any other region in the US, and the hometown hero effect sags after the initial election (when presidents become more nationalized)

He's popular enough in Chicago and all the downstate conservatives are already raring to vote, regardless of whether Obama shows. Getting the soft Democratic support in the Chicago area to go to the polls is what is needed for the dems in Illinois.

It's no exaggeration to say that the undecided could go one way or another.

In some elections, some voters don't even make up their mind AFTER they voted.
