Democrat Neil Abercrombie appears to be tightening his grip on the governor's office, according to a new Civil Beat poll.

Abercrombie leads Republican James "Duke" Aiona 49.5 percent to 44.5 percent, with 5.2 percent undecided, an automated telephone poll of 1,181 likely voters found. The survey was conducted Oct. 23 by Aloha Vote, a Hawaii subsidiary of Merriman River Group (MRG). The margin of error was +/- 2.9 percent.

A poll conducted two weeks earlier found the split to be 47.2 percent to 44.3 percent, with 8.5 percent undecided.
