Poll: Heller Up 6 In Nevada Senate Race

Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV) has some much-needed breathing room in his bid for a re-election in Nevada, according to a new poll released last night.

In the poll from NBC News, Marist College and the Wall Street Journal, Heller leads Democratic challenger Shelley Berkley among likely Nevada voters, 49 percent to 43 percent.  The poll provides some relief to the Heller campaign after the race had tightenend this month.

Heller edges Berkley by 2.7 points, according to the PollTracker Average — a much narrower margin than the larger leads he claimed earlier in the campaign.
