Sharron Angle, Ct’d

Here are a couple more thoughts on conservative concerns about Sharron Angle. First, Angle would not be the nominee in the first place if erstwhile Republican frontrunner Sue Lowden hadn’t blown a comfortable lead through gaffes (starting with the chickens for health care story) and an inability to withstand the Reid team’s efforts to to boost her negatives. So it is not entirely clear that Nevada Republicans would have avoided any problems by choosing Lowden instead.

Second, Sharron Angle has so far had one bad poll (Mason Dixon). Harry Reid’s polling has been consistently abysmal for well over a year, including in the one poll that has him leading. Angle is not a perfect candidate — there are few — and it is always possible she will blow this race. But given Reid’s ingrained unpopularity, the national mood, and the prevailing sentiment in Nevada, that’s not the way I’d currently bet.
