Nevada Senate Election 2010: Harry Reid Sinking Fast, Trails GOP’s Lowden, Tarkanian & Angle By Wider Margins
Harry Reid is all but finished in Nevada. What a crowning achievement it will be for Republicans and the voters of Nevada to add Harry Reid to the unemployment line.
I wonder if Harry Reid will consider losing his job as a “really good” thing?
Incumbent Nevada Senator and Democrat Majority leader Harry Reid is tanking in the polls for reelection in 2010. Harry Reid now trails Republican Sue Lowden 38% to 51%, Reid trails Republican Danny Tarkanian 37% to 50% and Reid trails Republican Angle 38% to 46%.
Two of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s Republican challengers have again crossed the 50% threshold and now hold double-digit leads in Nevada’s U.S. Senate race. One big hurdle for the incumbent is that most Nevada voters are strongly opposed to the health care legislation championed by Reid and President Barack Obama.
Most damning for Harry Reid is that only 20% of voters in the state have a very favorable opinion of Reid, while 48% view him very unfavorably.
President Barack Obama has become the “kiss of death” for the Democrat Party.
Also, Reid’s connection with Obamacare is a death blow to his chances for reelection as is many other Democrats across the United States. Barack Obama won Nevada with 55% of the vote in the 2008 Presidential election; however, just 44% of voters in the state now approve of the job he is doing as president. The President just recently came to Nevada to campaign for the embattled Harry Reid and the Democrat Majority leader received no bounce in the polls. In fact, it would seem as if there was a negative effect.
Just last month in the Rasmussen poll, Reid trailed Lowden by 6% points, trailed Tarkanian by 8% points and trailed Angle by 4% points. Following an Obama campaign visit and the renewal of Obamacare being forced on the American people Reid now trails Lowden, Takanian and Angle by 13%, 13% and 8% respectively.
These terrible polling numbers were taken before Senator Harry Reid decided to make the comment that 36,000 people losing their jobs was “REALLY GOOD”.
