Tea Party Republican Sharon Angle Leads Harry Reid By 11 Points

It’s the first post-primary poll, and it’s Rasmussen which has a well-known bias toward Republicans, but Sharon Angle has a lead over the Senate Majority leader at the moment.

Take it for what it’s worth.

  1. Steve Plunk says:

    I wonder if Harry Reid is still dancing in the streets? This is why pre-primary polls concerning potential match ups are worthless.

    What’s it worth? Priceless.

  2. An Interested Party says:

    Certainly not as priceless as the reaction most Nevada voters will have when they are made fully aware of Angle’s views…

  3. Zelsdorf Ragshaft III says:

    I know not what all Angles views are but we certainly know what Reids are. Evidently so do the people of the state of Nevada. No matter how the Democratic machine twist the facts and lie continuously about what Reid has done for the State of Nevada, it is more about what he has done to the state of Nevada and the rest of the states. My understanding is Nevada was opposed to Obamacare. My understanding is the people of Nevada opposed the Stimulous and the takeover of GM and the Banks. I believe the people of the state of Nevada believe in American values not the ones espoused by Barack Obama and backed up by Nancy Pelosi and Reid. Harry has not represented the wishes of Nevadans in a very long time. It is about time to return Harry to Searchlight.
