The latest Rasmussen poll shows Democrat Tom Udall still 10 points ahead of Republican Steve Pearce in the race for U.S. Senate in New Mexico.
But the numbers show an improvement for Pearce, who last month was 25 points behind, according to the same polling organization.
When "leaners" are including, there is only 8 points separating Udall and Pearce.
Meanwhile Democrat Barack Obama is still leading the GOP's John McCain in this state 47 percent to 41 percent, according to Rasmussen. This shows little change since last month.
One difference in the Senate race is that since the last poll is that Pearce began advertising on TV.
Udall, who has been running TV ads since June until recently had only "positive" commercials. Only recently has he begun hitting back.
In general, Pearce's ads depict Udall as a tool of "environmental extremists."
Udall portrays Pearce as being a puppet of "Big Oil."
