 A new voter survey by a national political pollster shows Democrat Dan Onorato gaining some ground on Republican Tom Corbett in the race for Pennsylvania governor -- but still trailing by 10 points.

The latest Rasmussen poll, released Thursday, shows Corbett getting 49 percent and Onorato 39 percent, with 10 percent undecided and 2 percent saying they prefer someone else. The survey of 500 likely voters, conducted on Monday, has a stated error margin of plus or minus 4.5 percent.

A Rasmussen suvey last month found Corbett leading, 50-37. Onorato's gain caused the pollster to shift its rating of the Pennsylvania contest from "solid GOP" to "leans GOP."
