JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) - A new poll shows the gap shrinking between the top two candidates for governor.

The Mason-Dixon poll, conducted last week, has Democrat Jim Hood leading Republican Tate Reeves by only 2 percent.

Fourteen percent were undecided.

Hood’s lead over Reeves was as high as six percentage points in a December 2017 poll.

The party primaries are in August. The general election is set for November.
