New Poll: Harry Reid Getting Killed In Reelection Bid By Just About Everyone Including Other Democrats

Sorry to contribute to the 'all polls, all the time' feeling but I love me some schadenfreude.

Harry Reid said he expected to be showered with love and thanks (or some such nonsense) by his constituents for passing health care.

Um, not so much according to a new PPP poll.

Democratic hopes of keeping Harry Reid's Senate seat would probably be better with a different nominee. But the state has trended in a Republican direction since Barack Obama's strong victory there in 2008 and the party will have a tough time there this year Reid or no Reid.

On Reid our numbers find the same picture all other recent surveys in the state have: he suffers from 58% disapproval and trails Sue Lowden by a 51-41 margin and Danny Tarkanian by a 50-42 spread. It's worth noting that despite Reid's unpopularity only 42% of voters in the state think he should step down from his leadership position while 49% think he should remain.

I don't understand this. Harry is pasty white and speaks with no discernible dialect whatsoever. Why isn't this a cake walk? Love and gratitude ain't what it used to be.

The not at all ugly Sue Lowden appears to be the unofficial AoSHQ candidate, so be sure to check out her website and keep her in mind once we get Brown over the finish line.

Late Addition:

I guess he figures he might as well go out in a blaze of, um, glory.

Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Thursday said that there is room on the busy Senate calendar to bring up a sweeping energy and climate change bill this spring.

...We have a lot on our plate. We have to finish reforming health insurance and Wall Street, and also must help bring Americans out of unemployment. But we are not so busy that we cant find the time to address comprehensive energy and climate legislation, Reid said, according to his prepared remarks.


He probably figures if he's going down he's taking as many of the other miserable SOBs with him as he can.
