Nev. Senate Poll: Angle Up 8 in Primary, Tarkanian Fares Best Against Reid

Though previous polls had shown Angle faring worst among the top three Republican contenders, Angle is beating Reid by 3 points (44% to 41%), while Lowden is trailing Reid by 1 (41% to 42%). Danny Tarkanian, who has avoided being hit with negative attack ads while Lowden and Angle go after each other, is leading Reid by 7 points (46% to 39%).

Harry Reid's unfavorable rating is a whopping 52 percent. For more on the race, see my writeup from Thursday.
