Memo to Senator Reid - might be time to seek employment elsewhere. That is the message of the day to Senator Harry Reid, Democrat from Nevada, in regards to his not-to-distant future.

The Mason-Dixon polling & research company has released several opinion polls from the state of Nevada, in regards to the United States Senate election in 2010. The news is great for Republicans, miserable for the Democratic Senator, and excellent for the American people.
snip

Overall, Reid's approval rating is just 37%, with 50% of the voters in Nevada disapproving of Reid, President Obama would not bring much help to Reid's campaign, as his approval is just 44%, with 45% of the Nevada voters disapproving of Obama as well.
...........................
Side note : Considering Obama won Nevada by about 100,000 votes (by a 55-42 margin, and he not only is approved by 44%, and disapproved by 45%), this should also raise some eyebrows with possible Republican candidates for the office of President in 2012.

Senator Ensign also has bad numbers (30% approval, 37% disapproval), due to an affair, however the disapproval numbers for Harry Reid are actually 13% worse then the Senator who has committed a scandal.

Perhaps the scandal of pushing through a liberal agenda, against the will of the American people, is worse then an affair in these days? Who knows.

2010 SENATE CAMPAIGN: Polls show potential GOP challengers would beat Harry Reid

It's the highest stakes ever for a Nevada election, and former boxer Sen. Harry Reid is on the ropes early. Either Republican Danny Tarkanian or Sue Lowden would knock out Reid in a general election, according to a recent poll of Nevada voters.


The results suggest the Democratic Senate majority leader will have to punch hard and often in order to retain his position as the most accomplished politician in state history, in terms of job status.



Nevadans favored Tarkanian over Reid 49 percent to 38 percent and Lowden over Reid 45 percent to 40 percent, according to the poll.
Reid's status makes him an icon of the Democratic Party and ties him to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and President Barack Obama, both of whom are losing ground among centrist and right-leaning voters in the country.


Winning "becomes more difficult when you are actually the one having to carry the water for the president," said Richard Davis, a professor of political science at Brigham Young University in Utah. "He (Reid) has got to get something out of the Obama administration that he can claim as his own."


But with the election more than a year away, Reid has plenty of time to attract more supporters to his corner.


Between now and November, 2010, Reid will attempt to show voters he can deliver lower health care costs and new jobs to Nevada, which has an unemployment rate pushing 13 percent.

Bye bye Reid! And good riddance!

Kicking the Majority leader of the Senate and the House to the curb would be a toot.

Correct. 6 months is a lifetime in politics but I don't see any miracles the O and the Democrats can pull out of their hat with unemployment rising, housing mess, the deficit, socialized meds pending and increased taxes on the way. People are pissed and it's going to stay that way and the dummies in DC don't think it matters.
For example, I have been a registered voter for almost 50 years and this is the first time I have ever called and written a politician. I think the silent majority has been awakened.
