With businessman Danny Tarkanian gearing up to enter the race in Nevada’s new 4th district, he released polling this week that showed him ahead in the GOP primary and in a test of the general election.

The poll of likely GOP primary voters conducted by Public Opinion Strategies showed Tarkanian ahead of state Sen. Barbara Cegavske 73 percent to 9 percent. The poll’s margin of error among GOP primary voters was 5.4 points.

Tarkanian also led a hypothetical matchup with state Sen. Steven Horsford (D) 47 percent to 36 percent. The margin of error among likely voters polled was 4.9 points.

Democrats hold a 13-point voter-registration edge in the new district, which was added as a result of reapportionment. President Barack Obama would have won it in 2008 with 56 percent, and it has 23 percent Latino and 14 percent African-American voting-age populations.
