BILLINGS - Two new polls released Wednesday show Montana's Senate and U.S. House race are both too close to call.
With seven weeks until Election Day, Public Policy Polling out of Raleigh, North Carolina shows Jon Tester holding a slim lead in his battle with Congressman Denny Rehberg.
That poll shows Tester with 45 percent to Rehberg's 43 percent, but it also indicates Montana voters aren't happy with the job either man is doing.
Only 46% of voters approve of Tester, while Rehberg is even more unpopular with just 42% of voters happy with the job he's doing.
And the race for Montana's open House seat also looks like a toss up.
Republican Steve Daines has a narrow edge over Democrat Kim Gillan, 40-37 percent, while Libertarian Dave Kaiser has 9%.
The poll surveyed 656 likely Montana voters on Monday and Tuesday of this week.
The poll's margin of error is plus-or-minus 3.7 percent.
