Democratic Rep. Gary Peters has pulled into the lead in Michigan's Senate race against former GOP Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land, in what has become a closely watched contest in the bid to replace retiring Sen. Carl Levin, a new poll has found.

According to a poll by Lambert, Edwards & Associates/Denno Research conducted on March 8-9, 39.7 percent of the 600 likely voters surveyed support Peters, compared to 36.7 percent who back Land, reports MLivecom, a Michigan news site. That's within the poll's margin of error of 4 percentage points.

The results are a departure from the findings of four separate polls conducted since December that showed Land in the lead, according to Real Clear Politics.

A Conservative Intel/Harper Poll in January, for example, gave Land an 8 percent advantage at 44 percent to 36 percent.

A victory for Land would give the Michigan GOP its first Senate seat since 2000 when Spencer Abraham was defeated by Democrat Debbie Stabenow and bring Republicans a step closer to their goal of recapturing the Senate this year.

The survey also found that Gov. Rick Snyder is leading Democratic challenger Mark Schauer by 42 percent to 39 percent. Earlier polls, however, gave Snyder a wider lead, including a 12-point advantage in the Conservative Intel/Harper Poll.
