Reid, Back to Work, Puts Fracas Behind Him

The Rasmussen poll found that Reid’s vote share has dropped to 36 percent against Lowden and Tarkanian, from 43 percent in December. And his favorable rating remains upside down — 55 percent view him unfavorably and 47 percent very unfavorably, while 41 percent view him favorably and 23 percent very favorably.

Ultimately, the health care debate is more likely than the racial gaffe to create ongoing headaches for Reid.

The Democratic-backed legislation is unpopular among a majority of Nevada voters. Just 39 percent of likely voters favor the Democrats’ health care plan, championed by Reid in the Senate, while 54 percent oppose it, Rasmussen found. The margin of error was 4.5 points.
