Chuck Schumer has one growing problem in a key swing state that could spell doom for his majority

Chuck Schumer is fighting to hang on to control of the Senate.

One key state is giving him a major headache.

And Chuck Schumer has one growing problem in a key swing state that could spell doom for his majority.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) had the narrowest majority possible in the Senate with just 50 Democrat senators, and Vice President Kamala Harris to break the tie.

Going into November’s Midterm elections, Senator Schumer has no margin for error if he wants to keep his job running the upper chamber.

Control of the Senate is coming down to a small number of battleground states across the country, where the GOP is hoping to knock off vulnerable Democrat incumbents to flip control of the chamber.

As such, Nevada is becoming a major problem for Schumer’s chances of keeping control of the Senate.

Incumbent Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV) is seeking a second term after becoming the hand-picked successor to the late Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), who held the seat for decades.

Senator Cortez Masto is being challenged by the state’s former Republican Attorney General, Adam Laxalt, who received the endorsement of former President Donald Trump.

Republicans have been making gains in voter registration in Nevada after Trump narrowly lost the state in each of the past two Presidential elections.

Now, polling shows that Adam Laxalt is gaining momentum in a race some pundits are beginning to point to as the GOP’s best opportunity to flip a Democrat-held seat this fall.

Four polls conducted over the past week show that Laxalt is now leading Senator Cortez Masto by a narrow margin.

The polls from Data for Progress, Emerson College, Big Data Poll, and The Trafalgar Group all found that Cortez Masto is in the danger zone for an incumbent, polling well under 50%.

Typically, incumbents are the more well-known candidate, and undecided voters usually break for the candidate with the higher name I.D.

At the same time, undecided voters are even more likely to vote against an incumbent when they share the same party as an unpopular President during a Midterm election.

Data for Progress found Laxalt leading Cortez Masto, 47% to 46%; Emerson put the race at 42% to 41% in Laxalt’s favor; Big Data Poll had Laxalt at 46% to 44% for Cortez Masto; and Trafalgar showed Laxalt with his biggest lead over Cortez Masto of all, 47% to 43%.

Even a polling outfit founded by supporters of Senator Bernie Sanders (Socialist-VT), Data for Progress, couldn’t find a lead for Senator Cortez Masto.

President Joe Biden’s unpopularity in Nevada could spell doom for Cortez Masto’s political career.

The Data for Progress poll found that any eye-popping 65% of independent voters had a “very unfavorable” view of President Biden, which doesn’t bode well for Senator Cortez Masto, as she’s served as a rubber stamp for Biden’s entire radical agenda.

Nevada’s growing Hispanic population could also give Laxalt another edge in the race, as Republicans have been making considerable inroads with Hispanic voters since Trump’s 2016 campaign.

Even NBC News is sounding the alarm on the race, admitting that Senator Catherine Cortez Masto “may be the most endangered Democratic incumbent” on the ballot in November.

The Senate race in Nevada could decide whether Chuck Schumer keeps his job after the Midterm elections.
