Sharron’s got an Angle on Harry Reid 

Don’t look now, but conservative former state Assemblywoman Sharron Angle may be overtaking her GOP primary opponents in the race to take on Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid:

Angle has conservative street cred, and it’s reflected in the latest Review-Journal-sponsored statewide survey conducted by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research. In the Republican primary contest, Angle has risen to second place with 25 percent, [Sue] Lowden is first with 30 percent, and [Danny] Tarkanian continues to fade with 22 percent. The poll has a margin of error of 4.5 percentage points, meaning Lowden and Angle are neck and neck.

The latest Rasmussen poll shows Angle with a 48-40 lead over Reid in a hypothetical general election matchup. With early voting beginning May 22, and recent stumbles by Lowden, the matchup could become more than hypothetical.

Election Day in Nevada is June 8.
