Reporting an internal poll conducted by a democrat polling firm and released by a political party as news is the worst type of journalistic activism… unfortunately it’s been par for the course for Politico since its inception.
DSCC poll: Berkley slightly leads Heller in Nevada
An internal poll commissioned by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee’s independent expenditure shows the Nevada Senate race as a squeaker, with Democratic challenger Rep. Shelley Berkley edging out incumbent Republican Sen. Dean Heller.
The survey, conducted by the Garin Hart polling firm and obtained by POLITICO, shows Berkley at 44 percent and Heller at 42 percent in the survey of 613 voters. The survey sample matches the voter registration in the state, officials said.
The survey also showed President Barack Obama leading Mitt Romney by 5 points, 49 percent to 44 percent.
The DSCC is obviously in desperation mode trying to do all it can to show embattled Congresswomen Shelley Berkley in a favorable light!
