AR Gov & Lt Gov Races Tighten in Campaign's Final Weeks: Arkansas Democrats still appear positioned to capture all 4 top state offices in tomorrow's Mid-Term Election, but the contests for Governor and Lieutenant Governor have both tightened, according to a final SurveyUSA pre-election tracking poll conducted exclusively for KTHV-TV Little Rock. Two weeks ago, for the open Governor's seat, Democrat Mike Beebe led Republican Asa Hutchinson by 20 points. Today, Hutchinson has cut that lead in half, peeling male voters away from the Democrat. Two weeks ago, for the open Lieutenant Governor's seat, Democrat Bill Halter had led by 15. Today, Republican Jim Holt has cut that lead in half. The tightening has also occurred, but to a much less dramatic extent, in the contests for Secretary of State and Attorney General. Democrats continue to have strong, double-digit leads in both contests.

Filtering: 900 Arkansas adults were interviewed 11/3/06 through 11/5/06. Of them, 775 were registered to vote. Of them, 549 were judged to be "likely" voters. Crosstabs reflect Likely Voters.
