Nevada in Play?

by Katrina Trinko

President Barack Obama is ahead of Mitt Romney in Nevada by six points, according to a new poll released by Democratic firm Public Policy Polling, which shows Obama at 48 percent to Romney’s 42 percent. But that’s a couple of points down from the 8-point lead Obama had over Romney in March. It also suggests that the Silver State — which Obama won by 12 points in 2008 — may be in play this year.
