    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is trailing a top Republican challenger by 11 points ahead of next year's election, according to a new poll.

    The Mason-Dixon Polling and Research survey, reported Sunday in the Las Vegas Review-Journal, showed GOP candidate Danny Tarkanian leading Reid by 49 percent to 38 percent in Nevada.

    Tarkanian is a former basketball player for the University of Nevada-Las Vegas and recently announced his candidacy.

    The new poll also showed Sue Lowden, chairwoman of the Nevada Republican Party and a possible candidate, leading Reid by 45 percent to 40 percent.

    The sagging numbers come at a time when congressional Democrats are facing tough questions from constituents on their health care reform proposals.
