It shows Heiner and Fischer each receiving 45 percent support. The poll has a margin of error of 4.3 percentage points.                Three percent of the voters say they support independent candidate Jackie Green, with two percent behind fellow independent Nimbus Couzin. A third independent candidate, Jerry Mills got on the ballot Monday.Both the Heiner and Fischer camps say they're not surprised by the results.
