National pollster: Gibbons closing, Tea Party a factor and voters super-negative

Those are the findings of a survey done for the retailers association by national GOP pollster Glen Bolger of 500 Nevadans who say they are likely to vote.

The survey, taken a week ago, shows Brian Sandoval only 6 percentage points ahead of Jim Gibbons; shows Tea Party hopeful Jon Ashjian helping Harry Reid but not putting him ahead of Sue Lowden; shows Lowden pulling away from Danny Tarkanian in the primary (UPDATE: Margin of error goes up to 7 percent in GOP primary matchups, so this assessment may be generous to Lowden); shows a startling 80 percent of Nevadans think the state is on the wrong track; and much, much more, including Nevadans being torn between raising taxes and cutting spending to fix the deficit.

The survey and some helpful graphs are posted at right.
