Poll: Reid falls further after 'Negro' comment

Harry Reid's support in Nevada has fallen even further in the wake of revelations that he used racially insensitive terms to describe President Obama's 2008 candidacy.

A new Rasmussen poll finds that Reid would get just 36% of the vote if the election were held today. That's down 7% from last month's poll.

Reid's opponents, however, have not picked up any ground since last month. Reid has simply lost support.

Reid has been at the center of a political storm since it was revealed in a new book that he used the term "Negro dialect" and "light-skinned" when talking about Obama's chances of winning the presidency.
