Nevada Senate Candidates Tied At 37 Percent In New Poll

Democrat Catherine Cortez Masto and Republican Joe Heck are tied in a new Nevada Senate poll from Suffolk University.

The Nevada Senate race has been closely watched as candidates race to fill the Nevada senate seat vacated by Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV).

Masto tied Heck at 37 percent in the Suffolk University poll of likely Nevada general election voters. Third party candidates Tony Gumina, Tom Jones and Tom Sawyer all polled at 1 percent, and Jarrod Williams polled at 0 percent.

Suffolk University has not polled Nevada likely voters on the Senate election previously, but a recent CBS/YouGov poll showed Heck ahead by three percent, 38-35, earlier this month.

The poll was conducted Aug. 15-17 over the phone among 500 likely Nevada voters, and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percent.

TPM's PollTracker Average of the Nevada Senate race shows Heck ahead of Masto, 37.3 to 36.3.
