Rasmussen poll: Ross takes slim lead over Hutchinson in gov. race

Democrat Mike Ross leads Republican Asa Hutchinson in the latest round of polling on Arkansas' governor's race.

The Rasmussen survey released Thursday shows 46% of respondents would vote for Ross. 44% chose Hutchinson. 3% like another candidate, and 7% are still undecided.

The poll was conducted via telephone August 25-26, and surveyed 750 people identified as "likely" Arkansas voters. The poll has a margin of error of + or - 4%.

The results show a switch in trends. All of the major polling in the race in the past few months have shown Hutchinson ahead by as much as 8 points. In fact, Rasmussen's last survey in late May showed Hutchinson up by 7 points.
