NEW POLL: Pro-Trump Businessman Leading Establishment Senator


Nevada Senator Dean Heller is looking to keep his seat against fellow Republican and anti-establishment candidate Danny Tarkanian.
In the first poll of Nevada’s primary, the outsider businessman and vocal Trump supporter, Tarkanian, is leading by six points.
Per the Hill:
The survey from JMC Analytics finds Tarkanian at 44 percent and Heller at 38 percent. Seventeen percent say they are undecided.
Tarkanian, who has never won elected office despite five previous bids, is viewed favorably by 59 percent of Nevadans and unfavorably by 24 percent. Heller, the first-term incumbent, is at 51 percent favorable and 43 unfavorable.

Republican primaries across the nation could be hotly contested with the anti-establishment movement looking to take seats from more centralist incumbents:
Republicans are bracing for a nasty primary season that is breaking along establishment and grassroots lines. The 2018 contests will pit Breitbart News chairman Stephen Bannon against Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and the incumbents he is trying to protect.
Bannon is recruiting primary challengers for every Republican senator seeking reelection in 2018 except for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas.). It is widely expected that Breitbart and an outside group run by Bannon’s allies will support Tarkanian in the race over Heller.
President Donald Trump has yet to endorse either candidate, but his opinion could make an impact in the polls:
Trump figures to weigh heavily over the race. Eighty-five percent of those polled have a favorable view of the president. Eighty-six percent said they’d be more likely to vote for a candidate who supports the president’s agenda.
The poll of 500 registered voters in Nevada was conducted between Oct. 24 and Oct. 26 and has a 4.4 percentage point margin of error.
Gov. Palin endorsed Tarkanian early in his campaign:
“Danny Tarkanian is a conservative outsider who will support the ‘America First’ policies our nation needs to survive and thrive, including building the border wall, ending sanctuary cities, and finally repealing Obamacare,” Palin said in the statement endorsing Tarkanian, provided exclusively to Breitbart News. “Commonsense Conservatives in Nevada and across America need to unite and help win this critical fight. I strongly endorse Danny Tarkanian for the United States Senate and look forward to helping him win this important election.”
