Mason-Dixon Poll: Reid Leads Angle By Two Points


The new Mason-Dixon poll of the Nevada Senate race shows Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid maintaining his narrow lead over Republican Sharron Angle.

The numbers: Reid 46%, Angle 44%. The survey of likely voters has a ±4% margin of error. In the previous Mason-Dixon poll from two and a half weeks ago, Reid had a narrow edge of 45%-44%. The TPM Poll Average currently puts Reid ahead by 47.7%-44.2%.

Interestingly, the poll finds Reid’s favorable rating at only 41%, with 52% unfavorable. Reid is able to stay ahead because Angle is unpopular, too — at only 35% favorable, to 46% unfavorable.
