Poll: Nevadans sour on healthcare reform

Not great news for Harry Reid: A majority of Nevadans now disapprove of Democrats' plans for healthcare reform, according to a Las Vegas Journal-Review poll.

Fifty-three percent of those polled say they do not support reform legislation, wich 39% in favor. In October, 49% opposed it and 40% favored it.

From the Review-Journal's write up of the poll, here are a few paragraphs that must sound like music to Republicans:

Fueling discontent with the bill, the poll shows, is the growing belief by Nevadans that Obama's reform package will raise taxes, result in rationing of health care, and cause major cuts to Medicare programs.

"When you look at the entire poll, it's clear the voters of Nevada do not want this bill to pass," said Brad Coker, managing partner of Washington, D.C.-based Mason-Dixon Polling & Research Inc., which conducted the poll Monday through Wednesday. "When you break it all down, it appears that Nevadans would just as soon throw this bill out and start over."
