"No I wasn't surprised at all; not really, because of the things he's got going. He's got some positive things, but there are a lot of negative things, too. So I wasn't surprised. But neither am I convinced on Chuy. If I have to choose between Rahm and Chuy, I might go back to Rahm to give him another chance and see if he can make things better. Other than that, I don't know where I can look for it."

Charles Swan

"Yes, because it would make a difference in our community to just show a difference between our community and our supporters. What we need is someone who will just do us right. I hate to say this, but I think I am going to support Emanuel, not that he's bad, but it's the experience and the knowledge. It's about what you do and how you do it."

Mallory Hardy

"No, I was not surprised, just because of the things he promised and didn't do, and the other problems that everybody else is having with the meters and stuff. I am going to support Chuy and give him a chance. It's always good to try something new; you never know."  

Charissie Langston

"I think Chuy is for everybody, and Emanuel is just for his folks up on the North Side. I was not surprised Rahm didn't win, because he hasn't done anything for the black folks; just for the white folks."

Sarah Davenport

"Yes, I was surprised because I thought Rahm would win. I didn't think we'd have someone else to go against him again. I am going to support Rahm in the run off because I like him. I just like what he has been doing rather than have someone else come in and mess it up."

Charles Howard

"No, I was not surprised, because of what Rahm has been doing by running the city is kind of low. I don't think I will be supporting Chuy in the run off. I might vote for Emanuel. He might do better this time."

Where did you find these black people at? The problem in our community is we have adjusted to disrespect. Of all the races , statistics say we watch more television than anyone, and its obvious by the responses here. These people obviously believe the lies that Rahm's commercials are telling them. People, please wake up before its too late! This guy's policies are totally adverse to the poor and working class. He's the advocate for downtown, north-side and the venture capitalists.
