From the LVRJ:
A poll released today by Rasmussen Reports has Sen. Dean Heller up 47-40 over challenger Rep. Shelley Berkley, the first Nevada Senate survey in months showing either candidate in a lead greater than the margin of error.
It is Rasmussen’s first poll in the Nevada race, so it is difficult to judge it against earlier efforts. Plus, Rasmussen limits its crosstabs to paying subscribers so it is difficult for the public to dissect its findings.
But most recently, Berkley grabbed headlines but also mixed reviews on a couple of high-profile issues. Earlier this month she demanded radio talker Rush Limbaugh to be taken off the air for insulting a law student who advocated for government-mandated insurance coverage of contraception.
