new polls show brizzi, carson ahead

wish-tv has new poll results in the 7th district and marion county prosecutor's races:

In the prosecutor race, Democrat Melina Kennedy is not just going door to door, she is also making personal phone calls to independent voters. The 24-Hour News 8 Indiana Poll shows she has ground to make up. Kennedy trails Carl Brizzi 50-to-42, but she says the race is not over.

bad news for kennedy, whose chances of defeating brizzi are starting to look bleak.

The race for 7th District Congress has narrowed over the last six weeks. Democrat incumbent Julia Carson now leads by just five, 48-to-43. Six weeks ago the lead was 20, 55-to-35. Nevertheless, Carson, who has never lost an election, says she feels as good about this one as any.

this is a bit more believable than last week's wthr poll, which i was skeptical about. the article doesn't state the margin of error for this poll, but i suspect it's lower than 5. in the wthr poll, carson was down 3 points, which was within the margin of error.

update: margin of error for the poll is +/-5%.
