  •  Reid's numbers haven't risen (0+ / 0-)

    The GOP numbers have fallen. That's not all that great news, especially for an incumbent.

    Yes, it looks better than before, but Reid still has a lot of work to do.

    It is not within the powers of the government to help its citizens get into heaven, nor to save them from hell.

    •  Agreed (0+ / 0-)

      But getting back into a lead is a first step, and one I never would have guessed he could accomplish. Also, Nevada has a 'none of the above' option that might take up the votes of people who don't like Harry but aren't fond of the Republican challenger either.

      •  "None of the above" (0+ / 0-)

        is something I hadn't realized Nevada has. Yes, that could help Reid - certainly won't the GOPer.

        •  Not binding, though (0+ / 0-)

          The "None of these candidates" option in Nevada is basically a way to register a protest vote by default and isn't binding; the actual-person candidate who wins the horse race is elected no matter how many people vote 'None of these candidates.' I would think that it would logically be a pro-incumbent thing, since protest votes that might otherwise have gone to a challenger are simply discarded.
