The race for U.S. Senate in Nevada is settling in as the contenders remain locked in a dead heat in a new Rasmussen poll out this morning.
Democratic Sen. Harry Reid: 45 percent. Republican challenger Sharron Angle: 45 percent. Five percent prefer someone else and 6 percent are still undecided, according to the survey that was conducted Wednesday.
When "leaners" are added (people who say they have no clear preference but might be "leaning" to a particular candidate), Reid holds a 50-47 percent lead. Those numbers become more important the closer it gets to Election Day, according to the pollster.
The race remains a tossup in Rasmussen’s view. The poll’s margin of error is plus or minus 4 percentage points.
