2010 Nevada Governor Race: Appears Democrat Rory _ _ _ _ ‘s Plan of No Last Name of Reid not Working as He Trails GOP Brian Sandoval 55% to 33%
What’s in a name? In Nevada it appears to be a lot, especially if your last name is ”Reid”.
It would appear that Harry Reid’s son, Rory Reid, plan to not use his last name as a way to distance himself from his embattled and unfavorable dad is not working. The most recent Rasmussen poll has Republican Brian Sandoval ahead by 22% points, 55% to 33%, over Democrat Rory Reid. OUCH!
Republican Brian Sandoval continues to hold a lead of more than 20 points over Democrat Rory Reid in Nevada’s race for governor.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state shows Sandoval with 55% support, while Reid earns 33% of the vote. Eight percent (8%) favor some other candidate in the race, and four percent (4%) are undecided.
While Sandoval has been a popular candidate from the start, Reid is apparently worried that his campaign is being hurt by association with his father, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Fox News is reporting that the younger Reid is not using his last name in the first TV ad of his general election campaign and on his campaign website.
Rory Reid can scrub his last name from his political ads and web site all he wants to try and distance himself from his father, it will make no difference. Rory’s only chance of winning the 2010 Nevada governors race is to chance his name to Brian Sandoval. Unfortunately for Rory, Harry and the Democrats … there already is a Brian Sandoval and he has a 20%+ lead.
RCP has Sandoval ahead of Rory Reid by 15.3%.
