The estate tax, which has been gradually phased out over the last 7-8 yrs, is the key to economic recovery. Good luck with that argument.

This borderline-retarded woman may eventually be the single biggest reason Harry Reid survives. He should be a political dead man, but for the joke of an opponent he faces.

I looked into this race early on months ago in the hopes Reid might go down, but was horrified by this tea party nutbag. She apparently is a disaster at answering semi-tough questions, and her campaign eventually just shut it down, not allowing her to be exposed at all to the media. She never had to run in a tough competitive campaign before in whatever dinky little obscure NV assembly district she came from.

Yep.

If the Democrats had any sense whatsoever, they'd have asked Reid and Pelosi to step down. Pelosi, especially, as she's become an easy target for linkage to other Democrats who are running.

Easily. The base (really of either party) will vote for any live body , but moderates tend to reject completely brain-dead candidates.

That's exactly the way the republican nominee in SD is running against the incumbent dem representative. Even though the dem rep Herseth voted against HC reform her republican opponent points out she voted with Pelosi 95% of the time.

IMO, she's out after the bloodbath in November, regardless of whether the R's take over the house.

She's already a poisonous name, and jettisoning her now doesn't solve the problem.

I dont live in NV, so I dont know everything that happened in this race.

Earlier this year Reid was in the low-40's in polling against all candidates, which is deadly for an incumbent where being slightly below 50% means you could be in trouble. Reid was going down in flames, and the polls basically said "anyone but Reid" would win.

Angle was in a tough primary with other candidates who I have to believe would have been stronger opponents, but the vote was split 5 or 6 different ways, the crazy people in NV voted for her, and she won the NV GOP senate nomination with about 40%.

Right after she won and people started paying attention to her, the race tightened. "anyone but Reid" seems to have shifted to "oh God, not her!" The gaffes eventually caught up with her, she stopped talking, and now Reid is on a slow inexorable march up to 50%+

Actually, she also didn't have the funds to counter Reid's attacks. After her dip, more money began to flow to here enabling her to fight back, with the race narrowing again.
So it ain't over yet. Too bad a right libertarian didn't run. Paul did pretty well in Nevada. I think it's a good state for that camp.

Since most social issues belong with the states, I'd rather see her replace that communist Reid.

"but, but... alnorth, surely you are exaggerating, I mean she cant be THAT bad can she? Your just depressed about poll results and lashing out at her unfairly in frustration, she's not nuts"

Yeah, she is. Here's one small taste: in the early 90's her son's football coach planned to psych up the team after a disappointing loss by changing the jersey to a black color. Her response? Bad idea, because black as a color is evil, and possibly satanic. (if you dont like that link, there are others, apparently a local paper picked up on it at the time)

Seriously the black shirt thing would have nothing to do with any policy. That's just a personal matter.
If I lived there, I'd vote for her just to create gridlock which is the best we can hope for in this current climate.
In fact, some voters who voted against Rs in the last two elections are already on record saying they'd be willing to put Rs in just to counter the Ds in DC.

The black shirt story is an indication that she is, mentally speaking, a total religious whackjob. That is not a good thing in a state like Nevada.

Beating Reid in this climate with his bad numbers should have been a 2-foot gimme putt on a flat green, but even gimme putts can be missed if you are careless.

If you nominate a crazy person against an unpopular politician, I'd bet the people would reluctantly tend to say "better the crazy guy we know than the crazy bat we dont". Beating Reid should not have been hard, but the NV GOP made it hard for no good reason by voting for this clown.

another good take on it. I wouldn't call the christian science monitor particularly biased against republicans.

How did Sharron Angle blow an 11-point lead on Harry Reid in seven weeks? (http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Politics/2010/0728/How-did-Sharron-Angle-blow-an-11-point-lead-on-Harry-Reid-in-seven-weeks/(page)/2)

“Not only do majorities of voters see each candidate unfavorably, the number of those who regard them ‘very’ unfavorably is high – 48 percent for Reid and 41 percent for Angle. Fifty percent of voters say Reid's views are extreme compared to 41 percent who say they are mainstream, with 8 percent undecided. Fifty-eight percent consider Angle's views extreme while 37 percent put her in the mainstream, with 6 percent unsure.”

In the end, Nevada’s US Senate race may come down to which candidate has the lower “unfavorable” numbers. That, and voter turnout, says Jelen. Angle has tea parties on her side, but Reid has enjoyed the support of culinary workers and other unions in Nevada.

oddly enough, there is a quirk in NV elections that might work (unfortunately) in Reid's favor. Nevada is the only state where the ballot includes a choice for "none of these candidates".
