(Newser) – Don’t look now, but Harry Reid’s in big trouble in Nevada. The latest poll has him a full 10 points behind Republican Sue Lowden, and that’s with the independent and Tea Party candidates in the mix, reports the Hill. Reid has trailed in polls consistently throughout the race, but he’s always maintained optimism, saying that the third-party candidates would siphon votes from Lowden. This Mason-Dixon poll makes that look like wishful thinking.
