WASHINGTON--The Illinois Senate race remains deadlocked, according to the latest Rasmussen poll, released on Tuesday, with Republican Mark Kirk at 45 percent to 41 percent for Democrat Alexi Giannoulias.

From Rasmussen:

The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Kirk picking up 45% of the vote, while Giannoulias earns 41% support. Four percent (4%) back Green Party candidate LeAlan Jones. Another five percent (5%) prefer some other candidate in the race, and six percent (6%) are undecided.

The race is little changed from two weeks ago, when Kirk posted a 44% to 41% lead over Giannoulias and Jones has four percent (4%) support.
