Democrats Senate Leader Harry Reid in Real Trouble in 2010 Election Bid … Where are Those Obama Coat Tails?
Harry Reid finds himself well behind in bid for re-election. Wonder if he will call those who oppose his re-election bid, “evil mongers”? If the 2010 Senate election was held today, Reid would lose to both Republican challengers. By the way …. where are those Obamamessiah coat tails?
Now here is some real change you can hope for from Nevada … Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is in some real trouble in his re-election. Reid finds himself way down in the polls with only about 38 to 40 percent of the vote. From the Las Vegas Review Journal:
The results suggest the Democratic Senate majority leader will have to punch hard and often in order to retain his position as the most accomplished politician in state history, in terms of job status.
Nevadans favored Tarkanian over Reid 49 percent to 38 percent and Lowden over Reid 45 percent to 40 percent, according to the poll.
Reid’s status makes him an icon of the Democratic Party and ties him to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and President Barack Obama, both of whom are losing ground among centrist and right-leaning voters in the country.
Winning “becomes more difficult when you are actually the one having to carry the water for the president,” said Richard Davis, a professor of political science at Brigham Young University in Utah. “He (Reid) has got to get something out of the Obama administration that he can claim as his own.”
Think there is not an anti-Incumbent wave in the air, especially against Democrats who have supported the $787 Stimulus and Obamacare? Think again. The high Vegas jobless rate at 12.5% may also have a lot to do with Reid’s dismal showing.
As Macsmind states, “Dirty Harry is in some real trouble in Nevada.” The Astute Blogger speculates, will Reid be Daschled?
From Michelle Malkin … Reid on the Ropes.
From The Politico … Poll: Reid trails by double-digits

The Democrat party will dump most of its money into his campaign. Dirty tricks by Dirty Harry will taint the Democrat party, and bring the Republican party back in power.
The downside of little Harry, is We the People
pay his enormous salary whether he is ‘working’
or not ‘working’ for us. Better to have him not
BTW time to retract that retirement at full pay
thingy that Congress installed for themselves.
Maybe if Reid wasn’t such a BLOW HARD ABOUT LEGALIZING ILLEGAL ALIENS HE WOULDN’T BE IN THIS MESS. IMO, he’s getting his just desserts.
you are right about that rightknight, what have they done to deserve something like that? NADA. they haven’t earned what they are making under normal circumstances. they are not working for us,they are working for the MEXICAN GOVERNMENT AND THE ILLEGAL MEXICANS WHO ARE IN THE U.S.
How bad is it that an Incumbent Senate Majority Leader has an approval rating of 38%. OUCH!!!
These are the same people who talked about GWB’s approval rating.
How bad must someone be to get below 40%?
Here in Nevada Harry has a nasty odor of crooked Real Esatate deals, payoffs from defense contractors and bringing in hordes of illegal aliens for the casino operators.He is also thought of as a scum partisan hack for Pelosi and Obama.Even the older citizens are sick of him and want him gone.My friends and I will RACE down to vote him out next election.
