Another Poll Has Reid Trailing GOP Challengers

Lauren Victoria Burke/WDCPIX.COM

A new Rasmussen poll finds Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) trailing his Republican challengers, further corroborating other polls that have also shown Reid in serious danger.

Sue Lowden, who recently announced her resignation as state GOP chair and is expected to launch a campaign, has 50% to Reid’s 40%. Former UNLV basketball player Danny Tarkanian, who has previously run unsuccessful races for state Senate and Nevada Sec. of State, has 50% to Reid’s 43%. The margin of error is ±4.5%

The pollster’s analysis says that the health care debate is not working well for Reid in his home state: “Most Nevada voters (52%) oppose the health care reform plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats, while 45% favor it.”
