Listen closely, hear that? Its the sound of the Fat lady she is warming up because Harry Reid is fading fast. According to Rasmussen’s latest look at Nevada, Reid is behind every potential Republican candidate and by a healthy margin. Much of the reason is the hatred of the Obama agenda especially Obamacare.
Against the three Republicans fighting for the nomination, Reid’s best showing is a seven point deficit vs Danny Tarkanian, He Trails Sue Lowden by 15% and Sharron Angle by 11%. Both Lowden and Angle would garner more than 50% of the vote if the election were held today.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey in the state also shows that 62% of Nevada’s voters support repealing the recently passed health care law. That’s a bit higher than support for repeal nationally.
Fifty-seven percent (57%) in Nevada say the new law will be bad for the country.
Another tough sign for the Senator is the fact that 62% of Nevada’s voters think it would be better for the country if most incumbents up for reelection this November were defeated.
Twenty-three percent (23%) of voters in the state have a very favorable opinion of Reid, up slightly from last month. But 53% view him very unfavorably, up five points over the past month.
The new numbers show Reid trailing ex-GOP Chairman Sue Lowden 54% to 39%. Only four percent (4%) would prefer some other candidate while two percent (2%) are not sure.
Former Assemblywoman Sharron Angle has increased her lead over the Democrat this month and is now ahead 51% to 40%. Six percent (6%) would opt for another candidate and only two percent (2%) are undecided between the two.
Reid now runs a little closer with businessman Danny Tarkanian, trailing the Republican 49% to 42%. Six percent (6%) would vote for another candidate in this race and only two percent (2%) are not sure.
While Barack Obama carried Nevada with 55% of the vote in 2008, just 43% of voters in the state now approve of the job he is doing as president, marking little change from last month. Fifty-eight percent (58%) disapprove of the president’s performance. These findings are comparable to Obama’s national approval ratings in the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll.
In Nevada, 49% say the views expressed by the Tea Party movement are closer than those of Congress to their own. Still, 35% take the opposite view. Fifty percent (50%) say the average Tea Party member has a better understanding of the problems America is facing than the average member of Congress. A third (34%) say the average member of Congress has a better understanding of the current problems.
Unlike voters on the national level, most voters in Nevada (52%) are not concerned that the anger at the president’s current policies will lead to violence. Forty-six percent (46%) say they are concerned about this outcome.
I wonder if the Fat Lady takes request, I was thinking of “Another one Bites The Dust,” what do you think?
