This is the second time in a few weeks that a Hickman poll has shown Pryor with a small lead — they had him up by two points in a late August poll.
Publicly released internal polls should always be viewed with a bit of skepticism. The few recent nonpartisan public polls of the race have found Cotton with a small lead, and Republicans have been more bullish about the race than Democrats in recent weeks.
The live-caller poll of 801 likely voters reached on landlines and cellphones was conducted from Sept. 13-18.
Republicans need to win six seats to take the Senate majority, and Pryor has long been one of their top targets.
