JMC Analytics & Polling made headlines when the organization released a poll in August that placed GOP challenger Danny Tarkanian ahead of incumbent Sen. Dean Heller (R), 39-31% in next year’s GOP statewide primary. Now, the firm is out with a new poll (10/24-26; 500 NV likely Republican primary voters; automated), and the results again give the advantage to challenger Tarkanian. According to the data, the perennial candidate has a 44-38% edge over the first-term Senator who, like retiring Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), has been under attack from President Trump. In a piece of good news for the Senator, his favorability has improved to 51:43% from the poor 34:48% positive to negative ratio determined in the August survey.
