In Colorado, SurveyUSA shows Republican Ken Buck and Democratic senator Michael Bennet dead even at 47%--and Public Policy Polling finds the exact same results. Buck leads Bennet by 1 point in the RCP average.

In Connecticut, Rasmussen shows Democrat Dick Blumenthal pulling away from Republican Linda McMahon--56% to 43%. Two weeks ago, Rasmussen put Blumenthal's lead at just five points. Blumenthal has a 12.3% lead in the RCP average of polls.

In Illinois, a Chicago Tribune poll shows Republican Mark Kirk leading Democrat Alexi Giannoulias 44% to 41%. Kirk leads Giannoulias by 2.8% according to RCP.
