Danes Head to the Polls in Incredibly Tight Race

Danes vote on Thursday on whether to keep Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt in power after unpopular belt-tightening reforms that eventually bore economic recovery or to elect center-right rivals who promise tax breaks. Denmark's first female premier, Thorning-Schmidt hopes people will forget broken promises after the last election and instead bask in a growing economy. But her bloc of parties is neck and neck with the opposition led by Lars Lokke Rasmussen. The latest Gallup poll carried out on Tuesday put the center-right on 50.7 percent against 49.2 percent for the center-left.
