Race for Senate control tightens

Updated 10/6/2006


By Susan Page, USA TODAY

WASHINGTON — Democrats are within striking distance of winning control of the Senate in the Nov. 7 elections, USA TODAY/Gallup Polls in six key states show as the campaigns head into their final month.
The number of Republican-held seats with competitive Democratic challengers has expanded to include Virginia and Tennessee, where Democrat Harold Ford Jr. now holds a 5-percentage-point lead over Republican Bob Corker among likely voters.

In Missouri, GOP Sen. Jim Talent narrowly trails Democrat Claire McCaskill, and in Rhode Island, Sen. Lincoln Chafee faces a double-digit deficit against Democrat Sheldon Whitehouse. The surveys, taken Sept. 27 to Oct. 1, have error margins of +/—5 percentage points for the likely-voter samples.

The landscape has improved for Democrats since the USA TODAY/Gallup state polls taken just before Labor Day. "You'd have to say they have at least a 50-50 shot at winning control," says political scientist Alan Abramowitz of Emory University. "That's certainly better than anybody expected a few weeks ago."

Democrats must gain six seats to win control.

One of the key states is Ohio and we are still using Diebold in spite of many protests.
