A new public poll shows the race for governor in a statistical tie.

The poll, released by Rasmussen Reports public polling service, showed Democrat Neil Abercrombie at 49 percent, with Republican James “Duke” Aiona pulling in 47 percent of the vote and 4 percent undecided.

The survey of 500 likely voters in Hawaii was conducted on Oct. 13 by Pulse Opinion Research for Rasmussen Reports. It has a margin of error of 4.5 percentage points.

The poll shows Aiona, the Republican lieutenant governor, has closed the gap on Democrat Abercrombie, a former congressman.

In a Star-Advertiser/Hawaii News Now poll conducted in August, ahead of the primary election, Abercrombie held a 54-37 percent cushion over Aiona.
