Bullock Hill debate
HELENA, Mont. -

A new poll shows the Montana governor's race remains tight with 3 percent of likely voters are still undecided in the days before Election Day.
A Lee Newspapers of Montana poll of likely voters found 49 percent supported Republican Rick Hill, 46 percent supported Democrat Steve Bullock and 2 percent planned to vote for Libertarian Ron Vandevender.
Mason-Dixon Polling and Research Inc. of Washington, D.C., polled 625 registered voters from Monday through Wednesday. The poll's margin of error is plus or minus 4 percentage points.
Because the difference between the candidates falls within the poll's margin of error, Mason-Dixon managing director Brad Coker says he's still calling the race a tossup.
A similar poll in mid-September found Bullock with 44 percent, Hill with 43 percent and 11 percent undecided.
