There's a new leader in the U.S. House race. After trailing earlier this fall, our latest KELOLAND News Election poll shows Republican Governor Bill Janklow ahead of Democrat Stephanie Herseth. Click here to watch this story(Windows Media) Last week we asked 600 registered voters if the election were held right then, would they vote for Bill Janklow or Stephanie Herseth? Their answers were different from what we've heard so far. Forty-seven percent of the registered voters we polled said they'd vote for Janklow. 42 percent would cast a ballot for Herseth and eight percent haven't made up their minds yet. Jim Hagen, Janklow Campaign Spokesman, says, "We're very excited about the poll results. I think it's a reflection of how hard the governor has been working in the last couple months." Stephanie Herseth says, "One would always like to be a little up instead of a little down in the polls but we've seen so many numbers and so many polls and what counts is neither of us has reached 50 yet."

In August and early October Janklow's support was at 41 percent. But when we asked voters last week, he climbed six points. Herseth showed a steady gain early in the fall, but dropped three percent in the last couple weeks. Jim Meader, KELOLAND Political Analyst, says, "I wouldn't put too much into the fact that maybe she's peaked. I guess I'd turn it around and say Bill Janklow as we've gotten closer to the election has become more of a candidate." Meader says Janklow's focused on his experience, and started to take the race more seriously than he did early on. Both candidates say in the final days, their strategy is the same. Hagen says, "We're going to keep working until the very last minute and then it's up to the voters of South Dakota." "We know we've really got to continue to make a big push here and squeak it out," says Herseth. Herseth does quite well with younger voters, while Janklow is stronger with older ones. Because older people tend to vote more, that gives him an advantage. But Meader says if Herseth can get voters 35 years old and younger to the polls, it could be even closer.
