With less than two weeks until the start of early voting, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo maintains a significant lead over his fellow Republican gubernatorial candidates, according to a new Nevada Independent/OH Predictive Insights poll.

Results of the poll, conducted from May 10-12, indicate that Lombardo holds a commanding 20-point lead over his closest competitor, Reno attorney and former boxer Joey Gilbert (35 percent to 15 percent), and a 24-point lead over former U.S. Sen.  (35 percent to 11 percent). Those findings mirror the results of a similar poll conducted about two weeks ago from The Hill/Emerson College, which found Lombardo in the lead (33 percent), followed by Gilbert (14 percent) and Heller (11 percent).

That lead places Lombardo as the “clear favorite” in the primary race, said Mike Noble, chief of research and managing partner of OH Predictive Insights.

“Anything can happen from now until Election Day, however, a lot has to go wrong for Lombardo, and a lot has to go right for his opponents to catch him at this stage of the race,” Noble said in an email.
