Harry Reid On the Ropes in Nevada

Majority Leader Harry Reid has the Republican opponent he had hoped for in Tea Party favorite Sharron Angle in Nevada, but still trails her by 11 points in the latest Rasmussen survey. Reid is already up on the air, slamming Angle for her views on Social Security and Medicare. Angle has responded thus far only with an Internet ad, while attempting to raise money for the coming battle. Reid has had consistently poor ratings for the past couple of years, with Nevada’s conservative electorate leaning right on health care and immigration issues. Angle has taken some positions (like Social Security) that Reid will attempt to exploit, and appears to me to be a candidate with great similarity to Rand Paul. Reid has gotten what he wanted. Will he be able to avoid the fate of Tom Daschle?
