the polls show Harry Reid~ the Democratic incumbent's popularity dipping to a new all-time low with 56 percent of registered Nevada voters saying they have an unfavorable opinion of the senator, while about four in 10 people say they would vote for him on Election Day -- not enough to win.
Sue Lowden has established herself as the far-ahead GOP front-runner in Nevada's U.S. Senate race and the Republican most likely to beat Sen. Harry Reid, even with a Tea Party candidate on the Nov. 2 general election ballot, according to a new poll commissioned by the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
"Reid is hoping third party candidates, particularly this Tea Party guy, will draw enough votes that he can win, but I don't see that happening," said Brad Coker of Mason-Dixon Polling & Research, which conducted the survey.
"Everybody knows who Reid is, and voters don't have a good opinion of him."

Many of the GOP, democrats, independents, libertarians, conservatives, and non-affiliated party members support the principles of the Tea Party. If you get the right candidate that best exemplifies those principles and ideals all of the groups mentioned will vote for that person regardless of party. I am registered republican; however, I vote for candidates and not party. I will not feel like I betrayed my party if a registered conservative best fulfills all the things I look for. I think more people feel this way than the liberals want to admit. And, this is what scares them, and this is what they don't know how to negate. They can't imagine voting for anything other than a democrat. We stand on principles. They stand on the party with no principles to speak of.

I think voting patterns reflect much about the American psyche. First, when life is status quo and calm, apathy appears high, voter turn out is lower and there is higher incumbent re-election. Further, when the economy sucks, tension is high, and the country is engaged in war(s) people are more vocal, animated and inclined to get involved. I'd venture to say with the country tanking, people are more apt to make changes-especially in elected officials who they perceive have caused the problems in the first place. They can't imagine voting for anything other than a democrat. We stand on principles. They stand on the party with no principles to speak of.
I'm an Independent who votes all over the board. ITDisagree with your stance- However, I know many I's who will not vote for a social conservative, ever. Principles- what an inflammatory statement.
