SUBMITTED NEWS RELEASE
Republican U.S. senatorial candidate Sharron Angle continues to surge in recent polling while her opponents spiral downward. Angle, seeking the bid to remove Sen. Harry Reid from office, came out on top once again in a newly released independent poll that shows Angle beating her GOP opponents and defeating Reid in November.
Today’s Mason-Dixon poll shows Angle with a wide lead going into Tuesday’s election with 32 percent of the vote, compared with 24 percent for Danny Tarkanian and 23 percent for Sue Lowden. The poll also has Angle defeating Reid 44 percent to 41 percent in the general election, while Lowden loses to Reid in a matchup.
“Sharron Angle has campaigned successfully throughout the state, introducing herself to voters and talking about the issues that matter to Nevadans,” said Angle spokesperson Jerry Stacy. “Sharron Angle has done what her opponents have failed to do; she has built a broad and diverse coalition of supporters sharing an overall mission which is to replace Harry Reid in November with a principled conservative that Nevadans can trust.”
Angle also toppled her opponents in three other statewide polls released during the week by Public Policy Polling, Research 2000 and Suffolk University.
