Rendell, Swann in dead heat:
In a hypothetical showdown, Rendell received 45 percent of the vote to 42 percent for Swann, the likely GOP nominee. Thirteen percent were undecided. A Keystone poll in September showed Rendell with a 20-point lead over Swann.
In the equally high-profile U.S. Senate race, state Treasurer Bob Casey Jr., the likely Democratic nominee, continues to hold a double-digit lead over U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Penn Hills, although Santorum has gained some ground, according to the poll. In the Senate race, the poll shows Casey, a Democrat from Scranton, leading Santorum by 50 percent to 39 percent with 11 percent undecided.
