This isn’t the year for Democrats to run for office in Nevada. Especially if their name is Reid.

Rory Reid looks like his father, but lacks his trademark charisma

The morning of November 3, 2010 will not be a happy one in the homes of any Nevada Democrats cursed with the last name Reid.

Rasmussen reveals the sad news for Harry Reid’s son Rory:

Republican Brian Sandoval now leads Rory Reid by 21 points in Nevada’s race for governor, but even embattled GOP incumbent Jim Gibbons has moved into a virtual tie with the Democratic hopeful.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in Nevada shows Sandoval, a former state attorney general and judge, now leading Reid 55% to 34%. A month ago, the GOP frontrunner was ahead by 18 points, 53% to 35%. Six percent (6%) prefer some other candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided.

But Reid also now trails his two other top GOP rivals. His father, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, continues to struggle against his three top Republican opponents in the state’s U.S. Senate race.

Mike Montandon, the mayor of North Las Vegas, posts a 45% to 38% lead over Rory Reid, currently chairman of the influential Clark County Board of Commissioners. Given that match-up, nine percent (9%) like some other candidate, and eight percent (8%) are undecided. In March, Montandon had a 42% to 37% lead.

Gibbons, whose unpopularity is attested to by the challenges for the governor nomination within his own party, now edges Reid 45% to 43%, after trailing the Democrat by eight points a month ago. Eight percent (8%) want some other candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided.

Nice to see that Rory Reid is following in his father’s footsteps.
