WASHINGTON, DC – iVote released the results of a survey that shows Democrat Kate Marshall leading Republican Barbara Cegavske, 35-33, in the race for Nevada Secretary of State today.
“In a difficult environment with a popular incumbent Republican governor at the top of the ballot, Marshall is proving to be an strong candidate,” said iVote spokesman Hari Sevugan. “Kate Marshall's strong record on non-partisan reforms made government more efficient as Treasurer, and her vision to ensure greater access to the ballot box for Nevadans are a stark contrast to the highly partisan, extreme record and views of Barbara Cegavske."
The survey, conducted by Public Policy Polling, shows Marshall leading Cegavske, by 35% to 33%, with 26% undecided. Respondents view Marshall favorably, with 21% viewing her positively against 15% negatively, with 64% unsure. Cegavske was viewed favorably by 12% and unfavorably by 15%.
