Can the Nevada Senate race get any closer?
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Nevada shows Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid with 48% support and his Republican challenger Sharron Angle with 47%% of the vote when leaners are included. Four percent (4%) like another candidate in the race, and one percent (1%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Two weeks ago, the two candidates were tied at 48% apiece. This race remains a Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Senate Balance of Power rankings.
Ninety-three percent (93%) of Reid’s supporters say they are certain how they will vote in November. Eighty-eight percent (88%) of Angle supporters say the same. But one thing's for sure: This race isn't a popularity contest.
The survey of 750 Likely Voters in Nevada was conducted on September 28, 2010 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.
