As reported in the Las Vegas Review-Journal, in the latest Mason-Dixon poll, Reid trails potential Republican candidates Danny Tarkanian and Sue Lowden by 49 percent to 38 percent and 45 percent to 40 percent, respectively. Winning
becomes more difficult when you are actually the one having to carry the water for the president. He (Reid) has got to get something out of the Obama administration that he can claim as his own.
said Richard Davis, a professor of political science at Brigham Young University in Utah. A voter registration drive to register Hispanics is planned, but Mason-Dixon managing director Brad Coker (in a moment of incredible understatement) said it’s unlikely Reid can generate the kind of voter enthusiasm Obama did in 2008.
If Obama didn’t register them, good luck. It is going to be harder to turn them out for Harry Reid than it was for Barack Obama. I suspect some of that might be the charisma quotient.
With Reid’s declining approval numbers, it’s possible that he’d have a hard time competing against Mickey Mouse or Donald Duck, both of whom are apparently registered voters in Nevada, and therefore eligible to run for office.
