Romney way ahead in latest poll of Nevada

in Uncategorized by

A new Public Policy Polling survey (via The Political Wire) in Nevada shows Mitt Romney is headed for a big victory on Saturday. Romney leads Newt Gingrich, 50% to 25%, with Ron Paul at 15% and Rick Santorum at 8%.

Key finding: “The bad news for Gingrich isn’t just that’s headed for a distant second place finish. Nevada Republicans actively dislike him, with only 41% holding a favorable opinion of him to 49% with a negative one. That’s an indication that GOP voters might be starting to sour on him again, sending his numbers back to pre-South Carolina levels.”
