Heck Holds Three-Point Lead In New Nevada Senate Poll

Rep. Joe Heck (R-NV) leads Democratic candidate Catherine Cortez Masto by three points in the race to fill Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-NV) seat, according to the latest Monmouth University poll.

Heck comes out ahead of the former Nevada attorney general 45-42, with Independent American Party candidate Tom Jones behind at 4 percent.

Heck’s lead in the latest poll is consistent with results from the most recent Monmouth University poll of Nevada, released in mid-September. In that race, Heck led +3, and today he maintains that +3 lead.

The Monmouth University poll was conducted via live telephone interview from Oct. 14-17 among 413 likely Nevada voters, and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.8 percent.

TPM’s PollTracker Average for the U.S. Senate election in Nevada shows Cortez Masto leading Heck, 44.6 to 42.5.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
