A new set of polling data came out for many of Montana’s statewide races today.

The poll, conducted by students and professors at MSU Billings showed that there were still many undecided voters, but edged towards republicans in nearly all races.

For example, in the U.S. House race, 22.6% supported Democrat Kim, 36.3% supported Republican Steve Daines 3.4 % supported Libertarian David Kaiser and a whopping 37.7% were still undecided.

In the Governor race, Republican Rick Hill lead at 40.3%, Democrat Steve Bullock took 38.1% and Libertarian Ron Vandevender held 1.5% leaving 20.1% of those polled in the “undecided” category   Doctor Craig Wilson of MSU, who helped to write and conduct the survey, says that the governors race results are “within the margin of error” and that “it’s still a horse race, no one can say which man is in the lead.”

The poll also asks a host of other questions not focused specifically on state candidates or races, such as the publics opinion on the Affordable Care Act, freedom of speech, and the President’s job performance.

More results will be released on Thursday, including the most up-to-date polling data on the Senate race between Denny Rehberg and Jon Tester.
