Two new polls out from the Indiana Chamber of Commerce show the race for Indiana's US senate seat is a dead heat, while the race for Indiana governor is right now shaping up to be a landslide.

The senate poll shows that Republican State Treasurer Richard Mourdock with a slight lead over Democratic local congressman Joe Donnelly.

41% of people polled chose Mourdock, compared to 39 % for Donnelly, but that is within the poll's 4 % margin of error.

17 % of people say they are undecided, while 3 % support Libertarian candidate Andrew Horning.

Meantime, Republican congressman Mike Pence has a commanding lead over Democratic former State House speaker John Gregg.

Pence is polling at 50 % to Gregg's 33 %, with a 4% margin of error.

15 % of voters still say they do not know who they will vote for for governor, while 3 % support Libertarian and former Survivor contestant Rupert Boneham.

The Indiana Chamber talked to 600 registered Hoosier voters from August 6 through 9 to see who they would vote for for governor and senator.
