Byron York has more news from Nevada:
A new poll by the Las Vegas Review Journal shows that a solid — and growing — majority of Nevadans oppose the Democratic health care plan now working its way through Congress. The margin for Nevadans overall is 54 percent oppose to 35 percent support. Among independents, it is 62 percent oppose to 26 percent support. Among Republicans, it is 89 percent oppose to four percent support. Only among Democrats does the plan have significant support, and that number is at 67 percent — lower than the level of support among Democrats in many other states.
In what is more bad news for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, 60 percent of Nevadans say they do not approve of Reid’s efforts to push the bill through Congress. That number includes 27 percent of Democrats who do not approve of Reid’s actions. The paper’s pollsters found that a broad majority of state residents just don’t like the legislative maneuvering Reid and his fellow Democrats engaged in to get the bill through the Senate.
Sure, Reid’s “Negro” comments put him in hot water this weekend, but it’s Obamacare, not racial politics, that’s bothering most Nevadans.
