Skip to comments.Harry Reid faces huge problems back home
Posted on 12/06/2009 3:29:18 AM PST by Scanian
At this point, at least, it appears that Nevadans are heartily sick of Harry Reid and want someone to replace the three term incumbent.
"Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) continues to face weak support back home, and trails both of his leading Republican opponents, according to a new Mason-Dixon poll released today.
Even as Reid has been airing a number of television ads highlighting his clout in the Senate and work saving jobs back home, the poll shows a near-majority of Nevada voters still view him unfavorably. Reid holds just a 38 percent approval rating - the exact same total as the last Mason-Dixon poll in October - with 49 percent disapproving.
Reid trails former Nevada Republican party chairwoman Sue Lowden by 10 points, 51 to 41 percent, and also trailed businessman Danny Tarkanian by a six-point margin, 48 to 42 percent.
Republicans face a crowded primary to determine Reid' opponent, and there's no clear frontrunner, according to the poll. Lowden holds a narrow lead over Tarkanian by one point, 25 to 24 percent, with conservative state Assemblywoman Sharron Angle in third with 13 percent."

Harry’s biggest problem is in the Mirror.. whoops... his kind don’t reflect in a mirror so ... NEVERMIND
“This reelection is lost...”
I'm just sayin.....
Will REAL citizens stand against it or just bend over and take it?
Is taking a day off work and filming improper activities at your polling place too much to protect your vote .. and ultimately your ability to protect and provide for your family?
Recognizing there are operatives within the system, are we willing to get involved sooner rather than later and stand against the lies, deception and tricks they're sure to attempt?
If we FINALLY recognize that our laissez-faire methods are going to lose us our freedoms, and act ... we can turn this around.
What we have been doing is not working.
Here he is, standing by Nancy Pelousy, both of them knowing what they have wrought amounts to the death of America, but they still stand there stalwart as little soldiers, not quite telling us the truth about what they have 'crafted' as they know the truth would drive us nuts and they could get seriously hurt.
You forgot one...Las Vegas. This is Nevada folks...don’t assume anything when it comes to Harry in this state.
Up until the first recount..
Hopefully he’ll be gone next November but the problem is all the damage he’s doing now...
Throw Reid off the Stratosphere.
Film at 6.
“You forgot one...Las Vegas”.
...Las Vegas is suffering more than most of the state. Are you referring to ACORN, SEIU in Las Vegas?
Plus Democrats voting in the Republican primary to select the biggest RINO in the pack, so that it will make no difference in the general election who wins.
Reid is the nieghbor who throws his garbage in your yard, the person who allows his dog to crap on your lawn and doesn’t pick it up, the guy whos driving in the left lane doing 30 miles an hour on the cell phone, the arrrogant cashier who’s got an attitude. I think you got the message!
As a dying man, he is more dangerous because e has nothing to lose
After he loses he will call in the markers and retire a megarich man
They can’t pick up more than 2 points in voter fraud. If they could you’d still be saying governor Corzine. Voter fraud only works in close elections. In blow-outs, like what we will see in 2010, they won’t even bother.
Las Vegas...SEIU, minorities, independents, money. The election is almost a year away. He should be gone but I won’t believe it until the last Clark County recount is finished.
Even if they do manage to push this liar out, the damage he has done to this country is unbelievable, Jail is where this crook belongs
He does not care if he is voted out. Just like Dash Hole before him, he will fall into a cushy mega million dollar lobby job and moon the country for the rest of his sad life.
Unfortunately that is the state of politics in the US these days, all for one...themselves.
You know Harry is in trouble when he runs so many campaign ads the year before the election.
Lowden, Tarkanian and Angle may not be the GOP’s only choices (and maybe one of the three will switch to the Lt. Gov. race):
5. Nevada Lt. Gov. Brian Krolicki, who was cleared earlier this week of any wrongdoing in connection with his handling of a college savings program, is interested in running for the Senate, according to a source familiar with his thinking. Krolicki, who was elected governor [SIC] in 2006 , served two previous terms as state Treasurer. He had long been eyeing a potential run against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) but had been sidetracked from moving forward due to the ongoing court case. Krolicki had long insisted that the charges were political in nature, noting that they were brought by state Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto, a Reid protege. Cortez Masto’s sterling image has taken a hit as a result of the dismissal with the Las Vegas Review Journal headlining one story on the affair: “Cortez Masto’s shining star dims after Krolicki decision.” It’s not clear how badly the negative press surrounding Krolicki over the past year would impact a race against Reid but the GOP field, which is led by former state party chairwoman Sue Lowden and businessman Danny Tarkanian, is not exactly stellar.
He does not care. Obama probably has a huge nest egg waiting for him when he is voted out. It’s time for him to go anyway.
I thought Krolicki made it plain that he was not going to run for the Senate ? I’m thinking he should keep his powder dry and run in ‘12 to replace John Ensign.
When one emerges and he/she is not a RINO, that person will be the recipient of enormous national support.
“Im thinking he should keep his powder dry and run in 12 to replace John Ensign.”
Maybe I misread a story this week that said he wasn’t going to run, even if the charges were going to be dropped. The comparisons to Vitter and Ensign are a bit different, however. Vitter wasn’t harmed by his personal indiscretions, but Ensign, conversely, has approval ratings not too dissimilar to Reid’s now, one reason I don’t expect him to run again. Of course, Jim Gibbons is refusing to stand aside as Governor, and he is more unpopular than Reid (even Rory would beat Gibbons one-on-one), so you never know. I say keep Krolicki as Lt Governor and if Ensign refuses to stand aside (a la Gibbons) we run him in the primary.
Flimsy résumés or not, either Lowden or Tarkanian will beat Reid, and I don’t want to see some brutal three-way primary that could potentially harm us for the general. At the moment, I’m leaning towards Tarkanian, so I wouldn’t necessarily feel bad if Lowden switched to running for another statewide office (such as Sec of State). We also need a strong recruit to take out Reid’s flunky, Atty Gen Catherine Cortez Masto, but I don’t think either Lowden or Tarkanian have law credentials to do so.
you got it!
I think that the odds of Lowden or Tarkanian blowing it against Reid is substantially higher than for Krolicki to lose to Reid, and beating Reid is a lot more important in both the sbort- and long-term than having someone ready to run against Ensign in a hypothetical Senate primary 3 years from now, especially since Lowden or Tarkanian could well be the sitting Lt. Gov. I would be shocked if both Lowden and Tarkanian stayed in the Senate race if Krolicki runs, and would not be surprised if both ran for Lt. Gov. or some other high office (Angle would likely stay in, though).
Reid is the bird in hand, and we have to run our strongest possible candidate against him.
Reid trails second tier opponents and analysts still call the race “leans democrat”.
I know he will spend a ton and use every dirty trick in the book but it’s time to change the ratings.
Lowden says she is pro-life, and sounds pretty convincing:
I would have guessed she was not based on that 1996 platform thing.
