Survey results I obtained Tuesday, albeit conducted by a Democratic pollster and ones that go counter to previous public polls (but not some private ones), seem to indicate even without taking the GOP’s temperature that the fever is raging here, too. Lowden losing to Harry Reid for the first time by 5 percentage points (42-37). Danny Tarkanian doing better than Lowden, tied with Reid (37-37). Rory Reid within striking distance of Sandoval in the governor’s race (46-41).

Those numbers don’t comport with other surveys showing Lowden and Sandoval with large leads over the Reids. But the point here is the volatility of the electorate, the volcanic bursts of anger, the intolerance for exaggerated flaws.

There’s something happenin’ here, what it is ain’t exactly clear.
