Adam Kinzinger (R CAND, IL-11) up in two polls.

This Hill article is not quite accurate:

If this is any indication of where the healthcare debate has left Democrats, they could be in trouble.

Rep. Debbie Halvorson (D-Ill.) trails her reelection race by six points in the first public House poll conducted after the healthcare debate.

The Public Opinion Strategies (R) poll for Iraq veteran Adam Kinzinger (R), which is set to be released widely, shows him leading Halvorson 44-38. The congresswoman is largely unknown, with a 33 percent favorability rating and 31 percent unfavorable.

…it’s not the only poll. Sean Trende over at Real Clear Politics is reporting that newcomer pollster We Ask America is likewise showing Adam over Halvorson:

Moving into the Chicago exurbs, first term Congresswoman Debbie Halvorson appears to be in a heap of trouble against former McLean County Commissioner Adam Kinzinger. She trails 42%-30% in the R+1 Eleventh district, which has traditionally sent Republicans to Congress.

Take that with as many grains of salt as you like, of course. Still, this is one of the GOP’s bright spots, even in an election cycle full of them.

Adam’s site is here; the Public Opinion Strategy poll is here.
