Three Polls, Three Slightly Different Results in Tester-Rehberg Race
Candidates remain neck and neck
Three polls released in the past week on the U.S. Senate race between Democrat Jon Tester and Republican Denny Rehberg tell us what we already knew: the race if way too close to call.

Today's Rasmussen Reports poll puts the race at a dead heat, with both candidates receiving 48 percent of the vote and only 2 percent undecided. A poll released by Montana State University Billings on Oct. 11 gave Rehberg a 43-40 percent edge over Tester, with 12 percent undecided and 6 percent for Libertarian Dan Cox.

Public Policy Polling's Oct. 10 survey gave Tester a slight edge, 45-43 percent, with 4 percent undecided and 8 percent for Cox.

Rehberg, Tester and Cox were in Kalispell this weekend for a debate at Flathead Valley Community College, where Beacon editor Kellyn Brown asked questions along with Daily Inter Lake editor Frank Miele. You can read my story about the debate here.

There is only one more Senate debate – Oct. 20 in Bozeman – before the big Nov. 6 election.
