NEVADA: New Poll Shows Harry Reid Leading Teabagger Sharron Angle

Senate majority leader Harry Reid has surged past GOP candidate Sharron Angle in a new poll after having trailed Nevada's teabagger hero in past surveys.
The Democratic incumbent's aggressive strategy of attacking Angle's staunch conservative views from the moment she won the June 8 primary has cost her support among every voter group -- from men and women to both political parties and independents -- in vote-rich Clark and Washoe counties. "He's had five perfect weeks," said Brad Coker of Mason-Dixon Polling & Research, which conducted the survey. "The race has been all about her, and he's been doing a good job of pounding her. Yet Coker said it's too soon to write off Angle. More than one-quarter of the nonpartisan swing voters who probably will decide the Nov. 2 election haven't jumped to the still-unpopular Reid but instead are undecided or in the "other" or "none of these candidates" columns, the poll showed.
Angle's campaign has posted a notice saying they are "unmoved" by the new poll, blaming the result on "false TV ads" from the Reid campaign.
