Wednesday Open Thread | Poll: Dem within two points of GOP incumbent in Nevada Senate race

Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) holds a slim but statistically insignificant lead over Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-Nev.) in the Nevada Senate race with a month left until Election Day, a poll released Tuesday found.

An NBC News/Marist poll shows Heller leading 46-44 percent among likely voters. The difference falls within the poll’s margin of error of 5.5 points. Heller is considered one of the most vulnerable Republican senators up for reelection next month.

The poll found that independents favor Heller, 42-39 percent. The incumbent is also the preferred candidate among likely male voters by a 16-point margin.

Rosen holds an 11-point advantage among likely female voters.

Democrats also hold a narrow enthusiasm edge among likely voters, the poll found. Eighty-nine percent of likely Democratic voters view this year’s midterms as “very important,” compared to 82 percent of likely Republican voters who say the same.

In addition, 51 percent of likely voters said they will cast their vote to send a message for more Democrats to serve as a check on President Trump, while 39 percent said their vote will serve as a call for Republicans to advance the president’s agenda.

While the poll was conducted days before Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed, it found that 38 percent of likely voters are more likely to support a candidate who voted for Kavanaugh, while 41 percent said they are less likely to do so.

Another 18 percent said the issue does not matter to their vote.

Heller was among the 50 senators who voted to confirm Kavanaugh last Saturday.

The NBC/Marist poll surveyed 574 likely voters from Sept. 30 to Oct. 3.

Trump has backed Heller and visited Nevada last month to stump for the incumbent and to attack Rosen, whom he has labeled “Wacky Jacky.”

The Cook Political Report, a nonpartisan election forecaster, rates the Nevada race as a “toss-up.”

      Dem pols always stay mourning harder than the bereaved at the funeral of the evil matriarch ….and they keep sucking up to the callous repugs who never ever reciprocate the graciousness …even as a matter of patriotic imperative ..

      Nor do the repugnant ever ever reciprocate the Dems sense of decency and ‘collegiality’..

      And Dem pols never learn …which is why they stay suckers and stay losing.. and those dumb, callous, soulless, treasonous repugs keep playing Dems for fools …and keep pulling the rug from under their feet …again and again..

    “A SUSPICIOUS BLACK WOMAN” is how I was described by a complete stranger who told me I “DIDN’T BELONG “ in her neighborhood.

    This, as I was sitting in my parked car, Friday afternoon, waiting to meet someone for an appointment. After a brief verbal exchange (see below) this woman called POLICE (play video). Another example of people using police as pawns to mask their ignorance! Woman: (comes up to my car window) Me: (lowers car window) Woman: can I help you? Me: no Woman: what are you doing here? Me: excuse me? Woman: I don’t recognize you. This is my neighborhood. You look like you don’t belong here. Me: it’s unfortunate you think only people recognizable to you can be in this neighborhood and park on a public street. Woman: you look bizarre Me: have a good day. (rolls up window) *****The woman walked away and moments later a Chesterfield County Police officer arrived
