RealClearPolitics - 2010 Election Maps - Battle for the Senate

Look at that, old boy Harry is in danger is losing his seat.

RealClearPolitics - 2010 Election Maps - Senate No Toss Ups

If we look at the no toss-ups map, we can see that Nevada is actually being picked up by Sharron Angle

He wasn't merely "in danger" of losing his seat. He was likely to lose his seat. Sharron Angle is the only person who could have saved his career. If the Republicans had nominated a sensible candidate the race would have been over months ago. They turned a nearly certain win into a toss-up. That's not really victory. The surprising thing is not that Reid is doing poorly, but that he still has a chance.

I love the lefty pundits from eastern states. Like they have a clue what's going on in Nevada and what will happen to Reid in a few more weeks. He's gone.

That's actually pretty good considering that Sharron Angle is much more conservative than the other "sensible" Republican of liberal extraction. Must pain you to see that a conservative in Nevada actually is tied to Reid. Had the other republican one, it wouldn't have been much of a loss since it was a contest between a far left liberal, and a moderate liberal, not a conservative.

Lol, first off Reid is not a far left liberal. Secondly Loweden was not a moderate liberal, nor a moderate. She is conservative. She just isn't an extremist like Angle.

Default no, Lowden is a Liar

Lowden helped with the Shut down of Ron Paul. Lowden supported Harry Reid, there's been mentioned of her giving money to Harry Reid campain. Lowden is a political HO. Bottom Line. She is a RINO.

Right Angle is getting a bump because the press is following WitchiePoo in Delaware. She has fallen to #2 or #3 among the least qualified candidates for the Senate.

I don't quite uunderstand how Nevadans would vote out a man who is the Senate Majority Leader. Doesn't that buy some clout for their State in terms of gov't pork etc? If they lose Reid, wouldn't they be concerned that the new one wouldn't have the same seniority or position of power as Reid? It's like starting all over again.

You don't get it .... PORK IS THE PROBLEM !!!!


I love how Nevadan Democrat Zoe Lofgren invited Colbert to a Congressional hearing to bring attention to her illegal alien hopes of amnesty.

It backfired. Showing America how much of a stupid circus the Democratic Congress has become.

It's out there now. Democrats in high office in Nevada are -- well basically -- idiots.

San Jose and its suburbs are now in Nevada?? Interesting.... Something tells me the people in San Jose will be puzzled when they find out they live in Nevada now....
