Poll: Voters Wish There Were Other Candidate Options

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS -- With a little more than two months until the November election, Senator Harry Reid and opponent Sharron Angle remain in a virtual dead heat.

That's one conclusion from a new 8NewsNOW Review Journal poll of voters. The other is that -- while people polled plan to vote -- they wish they could go back and choose their candidates again.

If the 2010 election for Nevada's U.S. Senate seat were held today, would you vote for:

Harry Reid, Democrat
Sharron Angle, Republican
Another party candidate
None of these
