Heller Edges Berkley in Suffolk Poll
Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., holds a slight lead over Democratic Rep. Shelley Berkley less than a month from Election Day in a new poll conducted by Suffolk University/KSNV.
The survey, released Thursday morning, shows Heller with 40 percent support to Berkley's 37 percent. Seven percent expressed support for Independent candidate David Lory VanderBeek, and 14 percent said they remain undecided.
Most recent polls of the contest show a continued tight race between Heller and Berkley.
The survey shows Heller doing better than his opponent when it comes to favorability: 37 percent have a favorable view of the senator, while 35 percent hold an unfavorable view. Berkley's favorables are just slightly worse, at 35 percent, but her unfavorables are up at 47 percent.
The ad war is raging in Nevada, and Heller and GOP outside groups have been hammering Berkley on ethics.
