Poll: Harry Reid faces formidable foes in 2010
Source: Associated Press

(08-23) 12:42 PDT LAS VEGAS (AP) --

A newspaper poll says Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid faces formidable opposition next year when he seeks a fifth term.

A survey of 400 registered voters for the Las Vegas Review-Journal released Sunday paints the Democratic incumbent as an underdog when matched against either of two possible Republicans rivals in the election.

The poll, taken last week by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research Inc., shows Reid lagging by as many as 11 percentage points against Danny Tarkanian. He had 49 percent to Reid's 38 percent.

2. He has left us no choice
He has clearly shown he can not continue as majority leader. It has been one constant string of disappointments.

12. Agreed--he is merely a tool. He has no moral backbone.

4. Question is: why would Republicans want to take down the best player on their team?

Hell they got rid of Pink Tutu Daschle and he was twice the DLCer that Reid ever was.

14. Other Senate Democrats would fight that tooth and nail, no matter what.
They empathize much more with one another than they should. Just look at the traitor Lieberman. We got a knife in the back but Senate Democrats welcomed him back with everything he wanted. His treachery continues to this day.

33. +1000
I'd be interested to see a poll that pits these same Republicans against a generic Democrat, rather than Reid.

34. Thank you. They will. And to those who want this slimy
no backbone, moron, lazy repug lite to stay in as Maj. Leader, he's toast. Pack your bags Harry. You blew it. Did not f'ing standup to Bush, allowed repugs to walk all over us. Allowed repug legislation to come to vote when you could have blocked it. Did not oppose war funding, did not fight Bushes SC nominee's. Allowed FISA to come for vote when you could have blocked that. F-you Harry Reid. Go home!

20. He's had high negatives- and they've been increasing
for quite a while now.

Also, it might be interesting to consider just how many Democrats are going to be all gung ho to go out and work for the milquetoast guy next Fall.

22. I agree he's milquetoast and is in danger of losing. My problem is the
small sample size.

35. house and senate leaders coming out of CA?
I think they might go for more diversity of locality. Perhaps something in a Lieberman, or a Specter.

26. One Doesn't Have to Be GOP To Hate Harry
He's despicable, regardless of his party affiliation. He's a traitor to the People and Our Constitution.

36. It would be worth a seat to get rid of him IF
he'd be replaced by somebody better. Since Reid was a spineless replacement for the spineless Daschle its possible that the entire caucus wants a spineless leader and would replace Reid with someone equally bad.
