Nevadans Lack Confidence in the Economy

LAS VEGAS -- In a poll commissioned by 8 News NOW and the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Nevadans were asked several questions about the economy.

Most Nevadans do not see the economy recovering anytime soon. A clear majority also thinks the country would not be better off if John McCain had been elected to president.
