A new Rasmussen poll of the Nevada governor’s race shows Republican Brian Sandoval 10 points ahead of Democrat Rory Reid, but Reid appears to be gaining some ground. Sandoval’s 50%-40% lead is narrower than the commanding 21-point lead he had in Rasmussen’s previous poll from July 12.
Other recent polls have shown Reid — the son of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who’s also up for reelection in Nevada — far behind Sandoval, a former federal judge. The last surveys of the contest from PPP and Mason-Dixon both showed Sandoval up 14 points.
The TPM Poll Average for the Nevada governor’s race shows Sandoval with 53.4% and Reid with 36.9%. The margin of error for the latest Rasmussen survey is ±4.0 percentage points.
