Mason-Dixon Poll: Angle Leads Reid By 4 Points

October 29, 2010 5:30 a.m.

The new Mason-Dixon poll of the Nevada Senate race has Republican nominee Sharron Angle expanding her narrow lead against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

The numbers: Angle 49%, Reid 45%. The survey of likely voters has a ±4% margin of error. In the previous poll from two weeks ago, Angle led by 48%-46%.

As the Las Vegas Review Journal, which commissioned the poll, reports on the internals: “The survey shows both Reid and Angle having most of their party bases, with the incumbent picking up 84 percent of Democrats and the GOP challenger 85 percent of Republicans. But Angle is winning the all-important independent voters by double digits, 55 percent to 38 percent, as Nevadans not aligned with either major political party swing her way as they settle on a choice.”

The TPM Poll Average gives Angle a lead of 49.7%-46.4%.
