Another poll has Angle up, race close

Another day, another poll in the Nevada Senate race.

A new survey by Rasmussen Reports released this morning indicates Republican Sharron Angle with a four point advantage over Democratic incumbent Sen. Harry Reid.

The survey of 750 likely Nevada voters that was conducted on Tuesday has Angle at 50 percent and Reid at 46 percent. The numbers include people who said they were leaning to one or the other.

Two percent preferred "some other candidate" and 2 percent were "not sure." The survey did not include a "none of the above" option that Nevadans can choose in the real voting booth.

The margin of error in the survey was plus or minus 4 percentage points, so statistically the race remains a tossup, which is how Rasmussen continues to assess the showdown.

"This marks the widest gap between the two candidates (in a Rasmussen poll) since late June," the service said.

Among those "certain to vote," 51 percent of Angle supporters said they were sure to be at the polls while 46 percent of Reid backers said the same, underscoring a developing theme that.

As far as favorability, the candidates are equallly liked — or disliked, according to Rasmussen. Reid’s favorables were 47 positive and 52 percent negative, and Angle the same.

The Rasmussen survey was the third public poll released in three days in the Nevada Senate race. In other recent polling, a CNN/Time poll yesterday had Angle up by two percentage points. A Fox News poll Tuesday whose methodology has been questioned had Angle with a three percentage point lead over Reid. Both leads were within the declared error margins.
