Harry Reid in Real Trouble in 2010 Nevada Senate Race … Trails Both Republican Challengers Lowden & Tarkanian
Obamacare pulling Reid down.
The Nevada Senate election in 2010 is yet another example of an incumbent Democrat in serious trouble in a reelection bid. This time it is Senate Majority leader Harry Reid who according to a recent Rasmussen poll trails Republican challenger Sue Lowden 50% to 40% and trails Republican Danny Tarkanian 50% to 43%. What is remarkable is just how far under the 50% incumbent threshold that Reid is. The polling numbers seem to mirror other recent Nevada Senate polling.
I don’t care if Nevada voters are against Obamacare 52% -45%, I know better that you
The first Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of the 2010 race shows Sue Lowden beating Reid by 10 percentage points, 50% to 40%. Lowden is chairwoman of the Nevada Republican Party and the preferred candidate of the Republican party establishment.
GOP hopeful Danny Tarkanian beats Reid by seven points, 50% to 43%. Tarkanian is a former basketball player for the University of Nevada-Las Vegas and the son of a legendary college basketball coach.
What makes matters worse is Obamacare. A majority of Nevada voters oppose Obamacare and Reid’s threat of using the nuclear option of 50 vote passage in the Senate for Obama’s proposed healthcare reform will prove all but fatal to any reelection bid by Dingy Harry. The Senate Majority leader continues to live in fantasy land as he thinks that his reelection bid will look better next year when the economy is back on track.
Most Nevada voters (52%) oppose the health care reform plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats, while 45% favor it.
However, because of Obamacare, the economy, unemployment, housing foreclosures, government spending and deficits out of control we see yet another state where the questions remains, where are the Obama coattails? Barack Obama carried Nevada in 2008 by 12% points. Now Obamacare is an anchor and Harry Reid has strapped that anchor to his leg.

Piss ant does not represent the People.
People squash piss ant.
Until Sen Reid does something to actually help the people of Nevada, as opposed to his buddies on Wall St., he’s going to face an electorate not inclined to give him another couple of years in the country club.
Keep your head in the sand Reid. You going down for the count. BUM!
There is hope! America is speaking.
Liberals will tell you this is no big deal…yada yada yada…but this IS evidence that the tide is turning.
We need term limits to avoid corruption.
Harry is part of the gang that would subordinate the
People to the Government rather than subordinating
the Government to the Constitution and the People.
It is wrong at it’s core!
DEAR PEOPLE OF NEVADA,
PLEASE DON’T RE-ELECT THIS SELFISH FOOL FOR ANOTHER TERM. NOT ONLY DOES HE DAMAGE YOUR SILVER STATE, BUT HE IS IN A POSITION TO DAMAGE THE WHOLE COUNTRY. PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT THIS MORON, WHEN THE MEDIA SHOVES A MICROPHONE UNDER HIS AGING CHIN.
Harry Reid speaks with forked tongue. He speaks, “I am against big government”, and then puts his total energy into having bureaucrats in charge our health care. Just think. Why does anyone think a government worker will do a caring job when deciding which medications you will receive and which life saving help you will have?
