Harry Reid’s favorability rating in Nevada is down to 32 percent, which is lower than President Bush’s. 51 percent of Nevada voters rate Reid unfavorably, according to a poll by the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Sherman Frederick of the Review-Journal explains these numbers as follows:
No one can win a statewide race in Nevada on a platform that appears anti-military, anti-family, anti-marriage, anti-religion, anti-free speech, pro-illegal immigration, pro-abortion, and pro-taxation. While Harry isn’t all of that personally, he clearly projects elements of them all when he’s doing the bidding of his party on the national stage.
Reid isn’t up for re-election until 2010. But it’s clear that he has a lot of work to do between now and then, and that his current role as mouthpiece for an ultra-liberal, pro-defeat of America party isn’t going to made his work easy.

JOHN adds: Harry Reid should be the Tom Daschle of 2010.
