Nevada Governor: Reid (D) Continues to Trail Sandoval (R)

Democrat Rory Reid still can't seem to grow his support in Nevada's gubernatorial race.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state shows Republican Brian Sandoval with 55% support, while Reid remains at 40%.  Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and another three percent (3%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) 

The race remains Solid GOP in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Gubernatorial Scorecard.

The latest findings are virtually unchanged from last week when Sandoval posted a 53% to 40% lead.  Sandoval, a former federal judge and state attorney general, has consistently led Reid, chairman of the Clark County board of Commissioners, in surveys dating back to February.  Support for Sandoval has ranged from 45% to 58%, while Reid has earned 31% to 40% of the vote.
