The race remains a Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Senate Balance of Power rankings.
Two weeks ago, the candidates were in a near tie with Buck leading 47% to 45%, the closest the race had been in eight months of surveying. In surveys since March, Buck has earned 44% to 51% support, while backing for Bennet has ranged from 38% to 45%.
