PPP Says Moderates’ Shift Behind Reid’s Rebound

Public Policy Polling today rolled out what appears to be a preview of yet another poll result that shows Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) leading Republican opponent Sharron Angle. That in and of itself isn’t particularly surprising at this point — there have been a number of other recent polls to show Reid back in the lead. What this preview shows is that there appears to have been a marked shift among moderate voters back towards Reid.

From the PPP blog post:

Sharron Angle is getting 9% with liberals and 80% with conservatives, down just slightly from the 12% and 82% [former GOP candidate Sue] Lowden was getting with those groups. But where Lowden trailed Reid only 51-41 with moderate voters, Angle is facing a 64-28 deficit. The price of nominating Angle for Nevada Republicans appears to be 26 points with moderate voters.

Obviously we don’t know how the full results of this poll yet so there’s no way to directly compare it to other recent polls. But the firms to show Reid improving against Angle fall across the political spectrum. A poll commissioned by the liberal Patriot Majority PAC last week showed Reid leading Angle 44-40 percent, while the latest poll from conservative Rasmussen Reports had Angle barely leading at 46-43 percent — his best showing all year in that poll. A Mason-Dixon poll commissioned by the Las Vegas Review-Journal showed Reid leading 44-37 percent.
