Reid Takes Lead in Nevada

A new Las Vegas Review-Journal/Mason Dixon poll in Nevada shows Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) has opened a strong lead over challenger Sharron Angle (R), 44% to 37%, "after pummeling her in a ubiquitous TV and radio ad campaign that portrays the Tea Party favorite as 'too extreme.""

Said pollster Brad Coker: "He's had five perfect weeks. The race has been all about her, and he's been doing a good job of pounding her."

This is the best Reid has done against Angle this year in a series of Mason-Dixon polls. Previously, the two had been locked in a statistical dead heat with Angle finishing just ahead of Reid in February, 44% to 42%, and in June, 44% to 41%, and Reid finishing just ahead of Angle in May, 42% to 39%.

These results also track another recent poll of the race.
