Heller Leads Berkley in Republican Poll

Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., leads Democraitc Rep. Shelley Berkley, by six points in one of the marquee Senate races of the 2012 cycle, according to a new survey conducted by a Republican pollster.

Heller leads Berkley, 48 percent to 42 percent, according to the poll, conducted by Glen Bolger of Alexandria, Va.-based Public Opinion Strategies. The poll, which was conducted for the Retail Association of Nevada, was first reported by Jon Ralston of the Las Vegas Sun.

Heller leads Berkley by 10 points among men and two points among women. He leads by 22 points in the state's 2nd Congressional District -- where Republican Mark Amodei just won a special election over Democrat Kate Marshall by 22 points. Heller represented the district before he was chosen to replace disgraced former GOP Sen. John Ensign, who resigned earlier this year.

The poll was conducted Sept. 14-15, surveying 500 likely voters. The margin of error is +/- 4.4 percent.
