Harry Reid v. Sharron Angle Race Remains A Dead Heat
Repeating a pattern we’ve seen for weeks now, the latest Rasmussen poll shows Harry Reid and Sharron Angle locked in an incredibly tight race for the Senate in Nevada:
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Nevada shows Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid with 48% support and his Republican challenger Sharron Angle with 47%% of the vote when leaners are included. Four percent (4%) like another candidate in the race, and one percent (1%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Two weeks ago, the two candidates were tied at 48% apiece. This race remains a Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Senate Balance of Power rankings.
Ninety-three percent (93%) of Reid’s supporters say they are certain how they will vote in November. Eighty-eight percent (88%) of Angle supporters say the same. But one thing’s for sure: This race isn’t a popularity contest.
As I noted last week, in the current political climate Reid should be in a lot more trouble in the polls. The fact that he’s still holding on says a lot about Angle’s weaknesses as a candidate.
