Reid Neck-and-Neck With GOP Challengers

Things are looking better for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. As The Hotline's Steven Shepard points out, Reid is within the margin of error of his GOP opponents in a new Mason-Dixon poll:

He trails Lowden (42-39%) and Tarkanian (42-41%), but he leads Angle, 42-39%. In mid-April, he trailed Lowden, 47-37%, and he trailed Tarkanian by 11 points the last time the two were matched up head-to-head, in late Feb.

Reid has trailed Republicans consistently; now, with the ascent of Tea Party-backed Sharron Angle (whom Reid prefers to run against) in the GOP primary, Reid is within striking distance.
