Poll: Reid trails GOP front-runner on full ballot

LAS VEGAS (AP) – A newspaper poll puts U.S. Sen. Harry Reid some 10 percentage points behind the Republican front-runner to challenge him on a full November ballot with six minor-party contenders.

The survey of Nevada voters commissioned and reported Friday by the Las Vegas Review-Journal has Republican Sue Lowden getting 47 percent of the vote, compared with 37 percent for the Senate Democratic majority leader.

No third-party or nonpartisan candidates drew more than 3 percent in the poll of 625 registered voters conducted Tuesday and Wednesday by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research of Washington, D.C.

Eight percent were undecided. The survey had a sampling error margin of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

Previous Mason-Dixon polls show Lowden leading 12 Republican primary contenders including businessman Danny Tarkanian and former Reno Assemblywoman Sharron Angle.
