Numbers Show Sue Lowden (R) Would Beat Harry Reid (D)

According to Las Vegas Review Journal in their latest poll, Sue Lowden is the front runner for the GOP to become the biggest challenge to Harry Reid, whose unfavorable rating is at an all time low.

As for Reid, the poll shows the Democratic incumbent's popularity dipping to a new all-time low with 56 percent of registered Nevada voters saying they have an unfavorable opinion of the senator, while about four in 10 people say they would vote for him on Election Day -- not enough to win.

"Reid is hoping third party candidates, particularly this Tea Party guy, will draw enough votes that he can win, but I don't see that happening," said Brad Coker of Mason-Dixon Polling & Research, which conducted the survey. "Everybody knows who Reid is, and voters don't have a good opinion of him."

Lowden calls Reid out of touch with reality and with Nevada voters and his insistence that his "internal polls" show him ahead when all other pollsters find him trailing badly, gives credence to her assertion.

Rasmussen shows Reid trailing Lowden by 15 points.

Mason-Dixon shows Reid trailing by 13 points.

Even the democratic leaning PPP shows Reid behind by 10 points.
