Republican Joe Heck Continues To Lead In Nevada Senate Race Polls

September 14, 2016 1:41 p.m.

Rep. Joe Heck (R-NV) has taken a 3-point lead over Democrat Catherine Cortez Masto in a new Monmouth University poll of the U.S. Senate race in Nevada.

The U.S. Senate election in Nevada has been closely followed as candidates try to fill Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-NV) seat. This latest poll caused Nevada’s U.S. Senate race to shift to lean Republican on TPM’s Senate Scoreboard.

Heck leads the former Nevada attorney general, 46-43, with Independent American Party candidate Tom Jones behind at 4 percent.

When Monmouth polled the Nevada Senate race in July, Heck led by two points, 42-40, with Jones at 5 percent.

The Monmouth poll was conducted Sept. 11-13 over the phone among 406 likely Nevada voters, with a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percent.

TPM’s PollTracker Average for the U.S. Senate race in Nevada shows Heck leading Masto, 46.5 to 43.5.
