Is the Trib's Endorsement Equal to a POLL?

Danny Davis told us when he endorsed Dorothy Brown that he was going with the Polls and choosing the leader in the race. As the Tribune has endorsed Ald. Sharon Denise Dixon, is there a poll showing her in the lead and therefore we should all follow suit?


7th District: Rep. Danny Davis seems eager to get out of the House. He pushed to be Cook County Board president four years ago, briefly sought the appointment to the U.S. Senate a year ago, and filed for County Board president this year but backed out of the race at the last minute. A seat in Congress should be more than Plan B. Nevertheless, he's running for an eighth term. He's not getting a free pass, though. He faces Darlena Williams-Burnett, chief deputy to the recorder of deeds and wife of 27th Ward Ald. Walter Burnett. Our endorsement goes to 24th Ward Ald. Sharon Denise Dixon, who has loads of energy and has been one of the few independent voices on the City Council.
