DES MOINES, Iowa – With just a day to go before the results of the midterm elections are announced, the latest Quinnipiac University poll shows the hotly contested senate race is a dead heat.

The poll, released Monday morning, has Democrat Rep. Bruce Braley in a 47-47 tie with Republican Joni Ernst.

“Iowa’s U.S. Senate race is a dead heat. The candidate who best gets his or her folks to the polls is going to win,” poll assistant director Peter Brown said.

Last week, Quinnipiac gave Ernst a four point lead. While on Saturday, a Des Moines Register poll had Joni Ernst with a seven-point lead over Bruce Braley.

Monday’s Quinnipiac University poll gave Governor Branstad an 11-point lead over Democratic challenger Jack Hatch in the gubernatorial race. The pollsters had the state senator 19 points down last week.
