Democratic U.S. Senator Gary Peters of Michigan leads his Republican challenger, John James, by seven points with days to go before an election that will determine which party controls the Senate, a Reuters/Ipsos poll showed on Sunday.

About 12 competitive U.S. Senate races are up for grabs in next Tuesday's election, 10 with vulnerable Republican incumbents and two with vulnerable Democrats. To have a majority in the Senate, Democrats need to pick up three seats if the party wins the White House, which gives the vice president a tie-breaking vote, and four if not.

Here are the latest results for three Senate races on which Reuters/Ipsos is polling:

MICHIGAN (Oct. 21-27 poll)

* Voting for Democratic Senator Gary Peters: 51%

* Voting for Republican challenger John James: 44%

* Peters led James 50%-44% in the prior week.
