Races in Michigan remain very close Monday morning, with the race for governor in a virtual tie, according to a new poll.

The We Ask America poll found that 43 percent of likely voters would vote for incumbent Republican Gov. Rick Snyder while 43 percent would would vote for former Democratic Congressman Mark Schauer. Just 10 percent of likely Michigan voters were undecided.

While declared Republican and Democratic voters who were polled mostly split by party in their candidate choice, independents were more likely to support Mr. Snyder, with 46 percent saying the current governor would get their vote in November. Just 34 percent of independents picked Mr. Schauer.

The same poll showed that Rep. Gary Peters, Michigan Democrat, is 3 points ahead of Republican Terri Lynn Land in the race for Sen. Carl Levin’s open Senate seat, though that’s still within the margin of error for the poll showing it is still a close race. This race could be one of several to play in a role in whether Republicans regain control of the Senate.

About 42 percent of voters said they will support Mr. Peters, while 39 planned to vote for Ms. Land, the poll said. Just 14 percent are undecided.

The automated poll spoke with 1,182 likely voters between Sept. 18 and 19. The margin of error is 3 percent.
