Poll: Trump-backed Adam Laxalt holds big lead in Nevada GOP Senate primary

Adam Laxalt, the Donald Trump-endorsed US Senate candidate from Nevada, would have a double-digit lead over Sam Brown in next week’s Republican primary, according to a Nevada Independent/OH Predictive Insights poll.

Among the poll of 525 likely GOP primary voters polled June 6-7, Laxalt received 48% of the vote, with Brown trailing at 34%.

And Laxalt’s lead is easily outside the poll’s margin of error, which is 4.4 percentage points.

Mike Noble, head of research and managing partner at OH Predictive Insights, said it would take something unforeseen to drastically change the configuration of Tuesday’s Senate race.

“Sam Brown really needs to pull a rabbit out of his hat if he wants to win on Election Day,” Noble said.

“Generally, primaries are very deadly, especially when you have a competitive one and your opponent doesn’t,” Noble added. “But frankly, given the size and scope of this GOP Senate race, [Laxalt] should actually be very happy when his detractors are so weak right now for the general election.”

Laxalt actually has a higher “unfavorable” rating (17%) than Brown (10%), according to the survey. On the other hand, however, Laxalt’s favor quotient (69%) is 8 percentage points higher than Brown’s (61%).

In other words, all signs point to Laxalt doing well, just four days before the opening of the primary polls.

Laxalt, a former Nevada attorney general and grandson of the late former Sen. Paul Laxalt, R-Nev., apparently enjoyed name recognition in the Silver State.

It also helps to already possess the endorsements of former Florida President and Governor Ron DeSantis — two of the most prominent and powerful members of the Republican Party.

A recent poll had Trump’s approval rating among Republican voters in Nevada at 89% – 4 points higher than in a similar survey from May.

The winner of the Republican primary will face Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, a Democrat, in the November general election.

In mid-April, a University of Suffolk/Reno Gazette-Journal poll found that Laxalt – which bills itself as a “consistent ally of law enforcement” – had a 3-point lead (43% to 40%) on Cortez Masto.

According to Breitbart News, Cortez Masto bolstered left-wing efforts to “demonize police officers and supported taxpayer-funded aid for criminals, even after a Las Vegas police officer was shot during the 2020 riots.” .

Laxalt said, “Nevada law enforcement deserves a lawyer in the U.S. Senate who will consistently support them every day, not just when an election year approaches.”

In a separate interview with Breitbart, Laxalt said:

“This is the 51st seat in the US Senate. This is the seat that will decide who has a majority in the US Senate.

“And we need to take back the Senate, in addition to the House, to completely halt the Biden administration for the last two years until we remove them and hopefully replace them.”
