Nevada Senate Election 2010: Reid About to be Retired … Sharron Angle (R) 50% Harry Reid (D) 47% … Tea Party Express & Palin Rally Support
Sharon Angle at 50% in Rasmussen poll …
With two weeks to go before the 2010 midterm election, Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid trails Republican and Tea Party favorite Sharron Angle 50% to 47% in the race for the Nevada US Senate seat. The incumbent Reid still cannot get about the 50% threshold of voter support and in the final weeks of the campaign, Sharron Angle is starting to pull away.
Angle tells Harry Reid to “man up”
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and his Republican challenger Sharron Angle remain locked in a tight race for the U.S. Senate in Nevada in the first survey following last Thursday night’s debate.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state finds Angle with 50% to Reid’s 47%. Two percent (2%) prefer another candidate in the race, and one percent (1%) are undecided. (To see question wording, click here.)
The race remains a Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Senate Balance of Power rankings.
A week ago, Angle held an insignificant 49% to 48% lead in a contest that has been marked for months by its closeness. In seven of eight surveys prior to this one since July, Reid and Angle have been three points apart or less. Both have hit the 50% mark one time.
In the wake of the debate between Reid and Angle where she soundly defeated Reid what came across to most is that Reid look tired and ready to be retired. With one of the highest unemployment and mortgage foreclosure rates in the country its hard to believe that any one would give Reid another 6 years in office, let alone take his advice on how the government is supposed to create jobs.
In the RCP polling Angle leads as she is ahead in Rasmussen, CNN and the Mason-Dixon polling.
Listen to Harry Reid lie through his teeth about his comment that “the Iraq war is lost and the surge will not work”. Harry Reid dodges the question completely. Reid’s comment about the Iraq war was disgraceful and like President Obama, they both thought the surge would not work.
If you thought that Reid should not be put out to pasture, go to the 10:40 mark of the video below for Harry Reid’s closing remarks. Oh my, he has been in office way too long. First he could not find his prepared comments and was confused, then he read off a piece of paper some typical Donkey talking points. There was only one debate this year in the Nevada US Senate campaign, Reid has been in office how long and he needed prepared remarks. Really?
The Tea Party Express began their bus tour in Nevada with Sarah Palin in support of the Republican Nevada US Senate challenger Sharron Angle. Their message clear … retire Harry Reid. Palin had a similar note to the GOP as Angle did to Reid the other night in their debate … “MAN UP”.
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) appeared before a rally of Tea Party activists in Nevada on Monday, urging them to show up at the polls and vote out Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and his fellow Democrats.
“Tea Party America, we’re winning!” she exclaimed to the a round of cheering and applause, “You’re turning this country’s political movement upside-down, inside-out and it’s all good.”
But she told activists “We can’t party like it’s 1773 just yet,” saying that Republicans will need a big turnout from Tea Party voters on Nov. 2 to make large inroads on the Democratic majorities in Congress.
On November 2, 2010 … vote for Sharron Angle, a breath of fresh air.
