(CNN) – Hours before Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Republican challenger Sharron Angle face off in a debate for the first time, two new polls indicate that Nevada's Senate battle remains tied.

According to a Las Vegas Review-Journal and 8NewsNow survey conducted by Mason-Dixon Polling, 47 percent of likely voters support Angle, with 45 percent backing Reid, four percent undecided, two percent supporting other candidates and two percent saying they will vote for "none of the candidates," which is allowed in Nevada. Angle's two-point advantage is within the poll's sampling error.

A Suffolk University survey released Wednesday indicates that 46 percent of likely voters in Nevada support Reid, the top Democrat in the Senate, with 43 percent backing Angle, a former state lawmaker who enjoys strong support by many Tea Party activists. The other six candidates on the ballot are in the low single digits, with four percent saying they will vote for none of the candidates, and three percent undecided. Reid's three-point advantage is within the survey's sampling error.

The Suffolk University poll indicates that Angle holds a 22-point advantage over Reid among independent and non-partisan voters.
