Stillow:

While Reid is definately in trouble and has a really good chance of losing....a poll by Lowden supporters showing Lowden winning is pretty amusing this morning...

This is one crappy poll that both R's and D's wish was true.

Yup, I'm right with Stillow on this one. Reid is vulnerable but there's hardly a guy in Nevada who can take him on, their governor is embroiled in multiple scandals, some legal, some sexual, and their lieutenant Governor is facing indictment of four felonies, Dean Heller doesn't want to run, and then there's the whole Ensign scandal. Point being the GOP brand is very unpopular in Nevada right now, and for good reason, while Lowden's polling shows good numbers their quite unlikely seeing as his name recognition in the state is quite low. Sorry that post got so long.

Nevada is probably one state where it would be a good idea if every stinking politician, both Democrat and Republican, were thrown out of office. They should start from scratch over there. What a mess.

While I dont doubt that Reid is in trouble, I do not believe that Nevada voters who re-elected Reid with 61% of the vote in 2004 against a generic republican will give him the boot in 2010 against another generic republican. With all the money Reid has in his campaign warchest, he could probably buy re-election to the senate in 2010.
P.S. I think Ross Miller should run for governor of Nevada in 2010.
