The Utah attorney general race continues to be up for grabs, the latest Deseret News/KSL-TV poll shows.

Attorney General David Wilkinson leads Democrat Paul Van Dam by just four points, 44-40 percent, with 16 percent of the citizens undecided, the latest Dan Jones & Associates poll shows.Van Dam has closed in on Wilkinson, a Republican seeking his third, four-year term, the last several months. Van Dam is a former Salt Lake County attorney.

The state auditor's race could also go to either candidate. Auditor Tom Allen, a Republican, leads Democrat Arthur Miller, 35-31 percent. But 34 percent don't know whom they'll vote for, Jones found.

Finally, Treasurer Edward Alter still trails Democratic Salt Lake County Treasurer Arthur Monson badly. Monson continues to hold a 16-point lead on the Republican Alter, 46-30 percent. Still, 24 percent are undecided and if the state votes heavily Republican in two weeks, Alter could nip Monson.
