The Senate race in Nevada has narrowed over the last week, with Republican Rep. Joe Heck clinging to a 1 percentage point lead over Democrat Catherine Cortez Masto, according to a Rasmussen Reports poll.

The contest in Nevada is one of the key battlground races as the Democrats need to pick up at least four seats to regain control of the Senate if Hillary Clinton wins the presidency.
Of the Senate races that are considered competitive, Nevada is the only one currently held by a Democrat, the retiring Minority Leader Harry Reid.

Cortez Masto, a former two-term Nevada attorney general, would be the first Latina in the Senate if she wins, Glamour magazine reports.

According to the KTNV-TV 13 Action News/Rasmussen Reports poll, Heck leads with 42 percent to Cortez Masto's 41 percent, compared with a 46 percent to 37 percent lead for Heck last week.

Other findings in the poll include:

  • 17 percent of voters either prefer someone else or are undecided;
  • Heck leads 43 percent to 30 percent among those unaffiliated with either large party;
  • Cortez Masto has a 64 percent to 20 percent lead among blacks and a 42 percent to 39 percent advantage among Hispanics;
  • 45 percent of voters view Heck favorably, while 41 percent have an unfavorable opinion of him;
  • 43 percent have a favorable opinion of Cortez Masto, with 42% viewing her unfavorably.

The survey of 750 likely voters was conducted on July 22-24. The margin of sampling error is +/- 4 percentage points, with a 95 percent level of confidence.
