Two weeks ago when Obama visited Las Vegas, he was singing Harry Reid’s praises while turning on the old Hopey Changey charm. Well the poll numbers are in folks and Reid still has zilch!
From The Las Vegas Review-Journal: Reid got no bounce from Obama's visit on Feb. 19, when the president spoke highly of him at Green Valley High School and to business leaders at CityCenter, polling indicates.
A larger percentage of voters surveyed (17 percent) said they would be less likely to vote for Reid following the president's visit than said they would be more likely to vote for him (7 percent). Seventy-five percent said Obama's visit would have no effect on how they vote.
"Reid was not helped, and Obama was not any more popular than he was before he came to the state," said Brad Coker, managing director at Mason-Dixon Polling & Research.
Is anyone really surprised? Obama’s numbers have declined and he is doing precious little to address the true concerns of the nation. How Reid ever got elected so many times is a great mystery to me. However, it appears that the people of Nevada are starting to ask the same question.
In another poll, each Republican contender defeats Reid. The only way Harry wins is if a Tea Party candidate runs and creates a three-way race. The Tea Party of Nevada had better think long and hard about running a candidate. It would be far better for them to get behind the most conservative GOP candidate for 2010 than to risk Reid remaining in the Senate. For 2010 and 2012 the main focus should be ending the Democratic Majority.
