In case you missed the Rasmussen numbers on the governor match-ups over the weekend (snippets/bullets):
– GOP candidate Brain Sandoval has an 18-point lead over Democrat Rory Reid who trails Sandoval 53% to 35% with 7% preferring another candidate and 5% undecided. (Last month, Sandoval led Rory by 12 points.)
– North Las Vegas Mayor Mike Montandon has a 42% to 37% lead over Reid. 13% said they like some other candidate and 8% are undecided. (Last poll, Reid led Montandon 40% to 36%.)
– However, Rory still has the edge over Gibbons, 44% to 36%. In that race, 15% want Someone Else and only 4% are undecided.
– Gender ratios: Male voters prefer all three GOP candidates over Rory (but by just three points when Gibbons is the candidate). Sandoval leads among female voters, too, but Reid has the edge among women over Gibbons and Montandon (hm!)
– Indy vote note: Among voters not affiliated with either major party, Reid trails Sandoval but leads both Gibbons and Montandon (hm!!)
– Gibbons: 37% of all voters in Nevada at least “somewhat approve” of the job Gibbons has been doing as governor (9% strongly approve). 61% disapprove of the governor’s performance, including 37% who strongly disapprove.
– Sandoval: gets “very favorable” views from 17% and “very unfavorable” from 10%.
– Rory Reid, double-whammied by being (1) chairman of the Clark County Board of Commissioners and (2) the offspring of the uber-unpopular Harry Reid, has 34% unfavorables.
– Montandon: 5% have a very favorable opinion of Montandon and 8% view him very unfavorably.
