(Newser) – Republican fears that Sharron Angle is too extreme of a candidate to take down a vulnerable Harry Reid may be coming true: The latest Rasmussen poll shows her lead down to 3 points (46% to 43%), within the poll's margin of error, reports the Las Vegas Review-Journal. She led by 11 points only a month ago but has come under withering attacks for comments that include calling BP's federal payments a "slush fund."
