With one week to go, Republican Brian Sandoval leads Democrat Rory Reid by more than 20 points in Nevada's governor race.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Nevada shows Sandoval, a former federal judge, with a 58% to 35% lead over Reid, chairman of the Clark County Board of Commissioners and son of embattled Senator Harry Reid. Five percent (5%) prefer another candidate in the race, and two percent (2%) are undecided. (To see question wording, click here.)

A little over a week ago, Sandoval posted a 56% to 37% lead. Reid has never been close in this race, trailing Sandoval by double digit margins in surveys since February.
