Nevada US Senate Races 2010:Harry Reid Unfavorables 50% & in Deep Trouble … Will Reid Retire Too or Go Down Like a Sweet Muffin?
Nevada Senator and Democrat Majority leader, put a fork in him … HE’s TOAST! And yet another Democrat who will be booted out of office for following Barack Obama instead of the will of the people who elected him.
Democrat Senate Majority leader Harry Reid from Nevada is in real trouble in his reelection bid for 2010. Reid’s poll numbers are disastrous. His unfororable ratings are at 52% and he trails all of the would be Republican challengers. Reid states that he is running and will not bow out or retire as some of his other colleagues like Dorgan and Dodd have done who faced most certain defeat in the 2010 midterm elections. However, as Wake Up America also states the worth that that Reid can do for the Democrats is not retire. Reid is the poster boy in the Senate for all that is wrong and his ramming of Obamacare down the throats of Americans as he makes shady back room deals.
• 52 percent had an unfavorable opinion of Reid, 33 percent had a favorable view and another 15 percent said they’re neutral. In early December, a Mason-Dixon poll put his unfavorable-favorable rating at 49-38. The lowest Reid’s popularity had slipped before in the surveys was 50 percent — in October, August and May of 2009, when Mason-Dixon started tracking the senate race for the Review-Journal.
Harry Reid trails all of his Republican chanllengers and is setting up to be the poster boy for the defeat of the Democrats in 2010. It is not just Republicans that Reid must fear, it is the wrath of Independent voters as well.
Sue Lowden, former Nevada Republican Party chairwoman, would get 50 percent of the vote to Reid’s 40 percent with 10 percent undecided.
Danny Tarkanian, a businessman and former UNLV basketball star, would gain 49 percent of the vote to Reid’s 41 percent.
And Sharron Angle, a former Reno assemblywoman, would get 45 percent of the vote to Reid’s 40 percent, a strong showing given her low name recognition statewide — 42 percent don’t know her.
And on the comical note of denial for the day as pointed out at The Political Wire, “Reid’s campaign manager claims internal polls “show the senator winning the general election against any potential opponent, but he refused to share any details.”
Reid has consistently trailed Tarkanian, Lowden and Angle in the polls and the fact that Nevada is strongly opposed to Obamacare also points out the fact that Reid could care less what his constituents think. For his lack of representation … he will be voted out in 2010.
