Conservative Pro-Life, Pro-Gun, Statesman Mike Wiley, who is the only Republican Candidate to have ever run in a US Senate Race before and the only candidate to have ever led a major rally to defeat gun control has jumped to 12% in a recent Nevada Policy Research Institute poll after just two months of campaigning.
In the NPRI statewide poll, Wiley is basically tied for second place with better known candidates Sue Lowden, Danny Tarkanian and Sharron Angle, who has been campaigning three times as long as Wiley.
State Senator Mark Amodei, the only Republican candidate to have ever voted for tax increases during his political career, appears in first place at 39%.
The statewide poll is proving that once again the conservative Wiley can gain traction by simply getting out and having the voters hear what he has to say.
In his previous US Senate race with three opponents in Florida in 1994, Wiley went from 1% in the polls to 25% in just four months in a state the size of Florida capturing 39 out of 67 counties, forcing a runoff while being virtually ignored by the mainstream media.
Wiley’s two months of campaigning has taken him to Pahrump, Elko, Ely, Fallon, Carson City and Reno, with a TV appearance on Face to Face with Jon Ralston and articles in local newspapers in Carson City, Elko and Pahrump.
The Clark County media is basically ignoring Wiley, except for KXNT’s morning source Alan Stock, who invited Wiley on for one hour to try and attack Wiley’s viability in the campaign.
While the media in Clark County tries to discount Wiley’s campaign, the voters of Nevada are not.
