Rasmussen on Nevada Governor: Republican Brian Sandoval beats Harry Reid’s 54% to 31%

Brian Sandoval, fresh off his Republican Primary win on Tuesday, now leads Democratic nominee Rory Reid 54% to 31% in the race for governor of Nevada, according to a new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in the state.
Three percent (3%) of Likely Voters in Nevada prefer some other candidate, and 13% remain undecided.
The numbers in this race have changed little in surveys going back to February. In late April, Sandoval earned 53% of the vote to 35% for Reid, who faced only token opposition in the state’s Democratic Primary on Tuesday.
This marks Reid’s poorest showing to date, however. In the four previous surveys, his support has fallen in the narrow range of 33% to 35%. Sandoval in those same surveys earned 45% in February but has captured 53% to 55% of the vote since then.
Sandoval, a former judge, carried 56% of the vote in a five-way GOP Primary race on Tuesday. His opponents included incumbent Governor Jim Gibbons, who has been dogged with personal and financial questions throughout his tenure in office.
