Polls tip GOP’s way in Nev., Ohio, Wash.

A new round of Fox News polls confirms what other surveys have said about two Senate races where Democrats once seemed to be turning a corner. Republican Sharron Angle holds a very slim two-point lead over Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. And Dino Rossi, R, tops Sen. Patty Murray, D, boy one point.

In both cases, the polling is within the margin of error, both polls show Republican challengers are very much in it and can win. And provided things go well elsewhere, victories in Washington and Nevada could create a GOP Senate majority.

Meanwhile, one more small piece of bad news for the DSCC:

The Pennsylvania State Troopers Association is poised to announce that it has endorsed the Republican running for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania.

Republican candidate Pat Toomey planned to appear Tuesday morning at the union’s Harrisburg-area headquarters for the event.

Meanwhile, unsurprisingly, Christine O’Donnell is not competitive in Delaware.
