President 2012 Nevada Poll Watch: Obama Surges to an 8 Point Lead

According to the latest Rasmussen Poll.

President Obama continues to lead Mitt Romney in a head-to-head matchup in Nevada.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the state finds Obama earning 52% support, while Romney picks up 44% of the vote.  Two percent (2%) prefers some other candidate, and another two percent (2%) are undecided.

This Nevada survey of 500 Likely Voters was conducted on April 30, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 4.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.

Perhaps the economy is better in Nevada. But, in any case, Mitt Romney had better choose his Vice Presidential running mate with Nevada in mind.

A key battleground state, Romney needs to win in Nevada.
