Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is being blasted in polls in his home state of Nevada, according to Politico.

Reid holds dangerously low approval ratings, and would lose to two of his leading Republican opponents, according to a new Mason-Dixon survey.

A 50 percent majority of Nevadans said they viewed Reid unfavorably, with only 38 percent hold a favorable opinion of him.

Reid trails former state Republican party chairwoman Sue Lowden by ten points, 49 to 39 percent. And he lags behind GOP businessman Danny Tarkanian, 48 to 43 percent.

Lowden gets the best news from the poll, which shows her leading Tarkanian, 23 to 21 percent – a major shift from the firm’s last survey in August, which showed Tarkanian ahead.

Tarkanian told Politico that those August numbers were proof that he was the strongest Republican to challenge Reid. With these latest figures -- indicating that Lowden has gotten improved name recognition as she kicked off her campaign -- that's far from a clear conclusion, Politico said.
