A new Moore Information poll for the Cresent Hardy campaign (R), finds the race falling into a dead heat in the open 4th District. In 2014, Mr. Hardy defeated then-Rep. Steven Horsford (D-Las Vegas), 49-46%, and the two return for a re-match this year. In 2016, Rep. Ruben Kihuen (D-Las Vegas) unseated then-Rep. Hardy, but he is not seeking a second term because of sexual harassment allegations.
According to the Moore survey (8/4-7; 400 NV-4 likely voters) the two candidates are tied at 41-41%. There could be a slight Republican sample skew, however, because President Trump’s approval rating is 48:47% favorable to unfavorable yet he lost this CD 49-45% in 2016. Still, in the only time the two candidates met, Mr. Hardy won yet media prognosticators who rate this seat as Lean or Likely Democratic routinely discount that information fact.
