A new poll indicates the Illinois Senate race remains very close. The Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in Illinois finds Democrat Alexi Giannoulias with 43-percent support to Republican Mark Kirk's 41 percent.

Six percent prefer some other candidate, and 10 percent are undecided. The margin of error is plus or minus 4 percent.

Kirk's numbers are rebounding slightly after a downward trend.
