Harry Reid in Trouble in Nevada

Harry Reid's senate seat is in play in Nevada.

In a hypothetical matchup for Harry Reid's Senate seat, Reid loses 51% - 41% with 8% undediced, a recent poll shows. According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal:
Nevadans aren't warming up to Sen. Harry Reid, despite plenty of early advertising designed to boost his image, a new poll shows.
Just 38 percent of respondents said they had a favorable opinion of the Democratic Senate majority leader, the same percentage as in October and 1 point higher than in August.
The survey of 625 registered Nevada voters by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research suggests the promotional bombardment that Reid launched more than six weeks ago has yet to hit its target.
"I'd be worried," said Michael Franz, an assistant professor at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine, who studies political advertising. "I'd stop if I had aired ads for two or three weeks and it wasn't moving the needle."
According to the poll commissioned by the Review-Journal, 49 percent of respondents had an unfavorable opinion of Reid, while 13 percent were neutral.
The opportunity to rid the Senate of this awful little man is too delicious to contemplate.
