Pre-election poll shows Nevada Senate squeaker

A pre-election poll on the Nevada Senate race by Public Policy Polling shows Republican Sharron Angle up by a point over Democrat Sen. Harry Reid, 47-46.

The survey, conducted over the weekend, suggested Reid prevailed among early voters, 50-46, "but those still planning to vote tomorrow are intending to support angle by a 48-40 margin.

In the breakdowns, Tea Party candidate Scott Ashjian pulled 3 percent and "none of the above" gained 1 percent.

"Angle has the slight overall advantage because she’s ahead 52-38 with independents," pollster Tom Jensen writes.

From the numbers, Jensen said "a lot of Democratic leaning voters aren’t planning to vote tomorrow and if even a small percentage of them can be rousted out of complacency to go vote for Reid it might be enough to put him over the top."

The analysis is here and the full poll is here.
