President 2012 Nevada Poll Watch: Obama Leads Romney By 5 Points

According to the latest Rasmussen Poll.

The presidential race in Nevada is a little tighter this month, with President Obama now leading Mitt Romney by five points in the Silver State.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Nevada shows the president drawing 50% of the vote to Romney’s 45%. One percent (1%) prefers some other candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided.

The survey of 500 Likely Voters in Nevada was conducted on July 24, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 4.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.

Negative Romney ads have been running for some time in the Las Vegas television market.

Romney needs to win Nevada and by selecting a Hispanic Vice President Marco Rubio might be the way to regain the edge in the state.
