The race to replace retiring U.S. Senator Harry Reid in Nevada has tightened up over the past week.
A KTNV-TV 13 Action News/Rasmussen Reports telephone and online survey of Likely Nevada Voters finds Republican Joe Heck with 42% support to Democrat Catherine Cortez Masto’s 41%. In our first survey of the race last week, Heck held a much wider 46% to 37% lead. At this early stage, however, 17% of voters are still in play: six percent (6%) prefer some other candidate, and 11% are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The survey of 750 Likely Voters in Nevada was conducted on July 22-24, 2016 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 4 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.Rasmussen subscribers can log in to read the rest of this article.
