Public Policy Polling, surveying for the Health Care Voter Coalition, a liberal organization, ran a push poll on health care issues during the April 30-May 1 period and surveyed 637 Nevada registered voters. The polling questionnaire was heavily slanted against the Republican position on repealing the current healthcare law. The telephone script also indicated that Dean Heller (R) and Jacky Rosen (D) are running for the ”US Congress,” instead of the Senate. While the Senate is part of Congress, as we all know, the political phrase, “running for Congress,” usually refers to the House. It is unclear whether this ballot description would have changed the results if the US Senate verbiage were properly inserted into the script.
In any event, Rep. Rosen leads Sen. Heller, 44-42%, according to this poll, yet more data suggesting this race is already too close to call. Other recently released surveys have also shown dead heat results between the two Senate contenders.
