(Storrs-AP, Oct. 29, 2004 9:20 AM) _ A University of Connecticut poll shows Fourth District Republican Congressman Chris Shays still leads his Democratic challenger.

The poll shows that among likely voters, Shays is ahead of Westport First Selectman Diane Farrell by five percentage points, 47 to 42.

A similar UConn poll two weeks ago showed Shays ahead 44 percent to 37 percent.

The poll director says Shays seems to be holding on to a marginal lead and time is running out. He says just how close the race ends up depends on turnout.

The phone poll of 500 registered voters was conducted from October 26th to October 28th and has a sampling margin of error of nearly five percentage points.

The Kerry campaign wants the RPCV vote. Read our interview with Dave Magnani, Massachusetts State Senator and Founder of "RPCVs for Kerry," and his answers to our questions about Kerry's plan to triple the size of the Peace Corps, should the next PC Director be an RPCV, and Safety and Security issues. Then read the "RPCVs for Kerry" statement of support and statements by Dr. Robert Pastor, Ambassador Parker Borg, and Paul Oostburg Sanz made at the "RPCVs for Kerry" Press Conference.

RPCV Carl Pope says the key to winning this election is not swaying undecided voters, but persuading those already willing to vote for your candidate to actually go to the polls.

Take our poll and tell us what you are doing to support your candidate.

Finally read our wrap-up of the eight RPCVs in Senate and House races around the country and where the candidates are in their races.

Schwarzenegger praises PC at Convention Schwarzenegger praises PC at Convention
Governor Schwarzenegger praised the Peace Corps at the Republican National Convention: "We're the America that sends out Peace Corps volunteers to teach village children." Schwarzenegger has previously acknowledged his debt to his father-in-law, Peace Corps Founding Director Sargent Shriver, for teaching him "the joy of public service" and Arnold is encouraging volunteerism by creating California Service Corps and tapping his wife, Maria Shriver, to lead it.
