Nevada Senate: Reid (D), Angle (R) Tied Again

Rasmussen Reports

Just before their first and only debate, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and his Republican challenger Sharron Angle remain locked in a too-close-to-call contest.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Nevada finds Angle with 49% support and Reid at 48%. One percent (1%) like another candidate in the race, and another one percent (1%) are still undecided. (To see question wording, click here.)

In seven consecutive surveys, both candidates have seen their level of support generally in the upper forty’s and both have touched the 50% mark but never topped it.  In those seven surveys, Reid has held the edge three times, Angle three times and they were tied at 48% in one. Neither candidate has held a lead outside the margin of sampling error. One week ago, Angle was up four, the widest gap between the candidates since late June.

The race continues, as it has been for weeks, to be a Toss-Up in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Senate Balance of Power rankings.

The survey of 750 Likely Voters in Nevada was conducted on October 11, 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.

Rasmussen Reports will release new numbers from the Nevada governor’s race later this week.
