Harry Reid’s popularity slipping in Nevada

Harry Reid (D-NV), now 0 for 41 in proposed legislation to withhold money to the armed forces, is less popular in Nevada then the very person he despises, President George Bush. According to Brad Coker, managing partner of Mason-Dixon Polling and Research Inc. His companies’ recent polling of residents of the state of Nevada shows a 51% unfavorable rating, and a 32% favorable rating while President Bush shows a 34% favorable rating. Reid’s favorable rating has slipped some 14 points since May, while his unfavorable rating has grown some 9 percent in the same time period.

If Senator Reid were a major league coach, his losing record on passed legislation on armed forces funding would have him tossed out on his ear. Fortunately for Reid, he doesn’t come up for re-election until 2010. He has done nothing but belligerently preened in front of cameras, declaring his demand to end the Iraqi war, by threatening to cut off the very money that assures safety to our troops. You would think after 41 unsuccessful tries, he would eventually get the message along with Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). Reid’s glaringly unfavorable rating has now surpassed the national 50% unfavorable rating of her highness Sen. Hillary Clinton of the great state of New York, speaking volumes for once again revisiting term limits on Senators and Congressmen. I for one would like to see him deal with something besides war, it surely isn’t the only item needing attention!
