A new poll shows Senate Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid with a slight edge over Republican opponent and tea party favorite Sharron Angle in the campaign leading to the November election.

The statewide telephone survey gives Reid a 44 percent to 37 percent lead over Angle, with a sampling error margin of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

Ten percent of 625 likely voters surveyed statewide Monday through Wednesday were undecided. Five percent said they would choose Nevada's none-of-the-above option, and 4 percent wanted someone else.

The poll was conducted by Washington, D.C.-based Mason-Dixon Polling & Research for the Las Vegas Review-Journal and Las Vegas CBS affiliate KLAS-TV.
