KEY RACE: Poll shows Stratton-Burnside race dead heat

The tightest statewide race of the fall campaign appears to be between an incumbent Ohio Supreme Court justice and her challenger, according to a newspaper poll.

The poll results, published Monday by The Columbus Dispatch, show the race between Justice Evelyn Lundberg Stratton and Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court Judge Janet Burnside to be a virtual tie.

Burnside's edge over Stratton was 25 percent to 23 percent -- just within the mail survey's 2.6 percentage-point margin of sampling error.

More than half of the respondents said they are undecided in the Stratton-Burnside matchup.
