Newspaper Poll Shows McCain Leading In Nevada

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Voters in Nevada are leaning toward Republican John McCain over his Democratic rival Barack Obama in a newspaper poll, but a significant number of people say they are still undecided.
The telephone poll conducted Aug. 13-15 by Washington-based Mason-Dixon Polling & Research Inc. for the Las Vegas Review-Journal shows that 46 percent of voters prefer McCain while 39 percent prefer Obama, with 15 percent undecided. The poll's error margin is 5 percentage points.
Brad Coker, managing partner of the polling firm, says McCain seems to have gained "an upper hand in Nevada."
Results of a June poll were tighter, as McCain led 44 percent to Obama's 42 percent, with 14 percent of voters undecided. That result was within the poll's margin of error.
