According to a recent survey, Laxalt is ahead of Senator Cortez Masto in the campaign for the Nevada Senate seat.

In light of rising gas prices, the border problem, and an increase in crime, former attorney general Adam Laxalt asserts that his recent surge in the Nevada Senate race is the result of voters becoming “fed up with Cortez Masto.”

According to a recent CNN poll, Laxalt, the Trump-backed candidate for the state’s Senate seat, leads Democrat Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto by two points, 48% to 46%. Masto, who is clinging to her seat with 42% support, is trailing Laxalt among potential independent voters with 47% of the party’s support.

Despite lagging in the expected vote count, Cortez Masto received 45% better favorable ratings than her GOP rival.

Laxalt said on Friday that “these polls capture what we are seeing on the ground here in Nevada.” The repercussions of an open border, increased violent crime, record-high gas costs, and soaring inflation have made Nevadans tired of Cortez Masto’s steadfast support for Joe Biden, who received 95% of his vote.

“I’m a former Navy and Iraq War veteran and the state’s top cop, supported by law enforcement. All political parties in Nevada are supporting me because they know I will always put the needs of Nevadans first. In November, we anticipate Cortez Masto’s campaign admitting defeat.

Former Nevada attorney general Adam Laxalt is the GOP nominee running to unseat incumbent Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto.

The survey is consistent with the Real Clear Politics average of the available polls, which show Laxalt with a roughly 2-point edge. Fox News Digital reached out to Cortez Masto for comment regarding the fresh polling results, but she did not answer.

Only 14% of Nevadans considered abortion to be the most significant problem, despite Cortez Masto making it the focus of her campaign and airing multiple ads criticizing her pro-life opponent. Instead, 44% of Nevadans felt that the economy and inflation were the most important issues.

According to the CNN poll, Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, D-Nev., is trailing behind her GOP opponent in Nevada's Senate race.

According to the poll, 47% of prospective voters believed that if Republicans were to take control of Congress after the midterm elections, the nation would be better off.

Comparatively, former Republican president Donald Trump had a 49% approval rating at the same period in his administration, just before the 2018 midterm elections, while President Joe Biden had a 41% approval rating. 68% of independent voters think Biden is handling the presidency poorly.

Gov. Steve Sisolak, a Democrat running for governor in Nevada, is trailing GOP nominee Joe Lombardo by two points (48% to 46%) in the polls. In addition, the Republican is up 7 percentage points, or 47% to 40%, among independent voters.

Republican candidate for Nevada governor, Joe Lombardo, center, is a former Clark County Sheriff.

After numerous recent polls showing independent voters in crucial election states are more aligned with Republicans in terms of midterm priorities, the Republicans now lead the Democrats among likely independent voters.
