Harry Reid's re-election campaign is going… badly, if you will, and there's more bad news this week: the latest Mason-Dixon poll shows Reid's potential GOP opponent Sue Lowden with a good chance of winning the Nevada Senate race, and Reid's popularity has fallen to another all-time low.
But polls aren't perfect, are they?
Reid dismisses surveys, saying "I'm not a poll guy" and the only poll that counts is on Election Day even as his campaign says privately that its internal polling and focus groups show the senator ahead.
The Reid campaign also contends the Mason-Dixon poll isn't a true ballot test because it doesn't include the full general election slate of eight candidates, including the Democratic senator who faces little-known primary opposition, the GOP nominee, several nonpartisan candidates and one each from the Independent American Party and the Tea Party of Nevada, and "none of these candidates."
Not to mention all the potential write-in votes for Cher, Mickey Mouse and Santa Claus.
Any one of those could be a real game changer.
