Laxalt tops Nevada Republican primary with 37-point lead

Former Nevada Attorney General and current Republican Senate nominee Adam Laxalt, backed by former President Donald Trump, has a massive 37-point advantage over his nearest major competitor.

The WPA Intelligence poll showed Laxalt has a clear 37-point lead over its nearest challenger with Republican voters in Nevada. Laxalt garnered the support of 57% of respondents, and Sam Brown, its closest competitor, only got 20% of the vote.

The other Republican candidates were in single digits. Bill Hockstedler only received one percent as well as Sharelle Mendenhall. There were also nine percent who said “none of these candidates” and 12 percent who said undecided.

The poll also found that the former Nevada attorney general enjoys high awareness and favor in the state, with name recognition at 88% and total favor at 70%. Only 12% had a negative opinion of him.

The poll was conducted by WPA Intelligence and conducted from April 24-26. There was a sample of 503 Republican voters and a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4%.

In mid-April, a hypothetical poll showed Laxalt leading Democratic Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV) by three percentage points (43-40%).

Laxalt previously told Breitbart News that Cortez Masto bolstered left-wing efforts to “demonize police officers and supported taxpayer-funded aid for criminals, even after a Las Vegas police officer was shot during the riots. of 2020”.

He added that he would be “a constant ally for law enforcement” when elected and not a flip-flop like Cortez Masto since it’s an election year for her.

“Nevada law enforcement deserves a lawyer in the US Senate who will consistently support them every day, not just when an election year approaches,” Laxalt continued.
