(CNN) – Just ten days before Election Day, Sen. Harry Reid said he's confident Nevada voters will choose him over his opponent, Republican Sharron Angle.
"We're going to win and I think that's pretty clear," Reid told CNN Senior White House Correspondent Ed Henry, who caught up with the Senate majority leader at the Nevada Democratic Party headquarters in Las Vegas on Saturday.
The senior Senate Democrat was in Las Vegas to meet with campaign volunteers who are making phone calls and canvassing for Reid in his bitter fight to hold on to his top spot in the Senate.
Reid also dismissed recent polls that show the contentious race is in a dead heat, telling CNN, "We feel confident. …I'm not gonna be bothered by the inaccurate polls that you folks pass around all the time."
Two senior Democratic sources told CNN that Reid's internal polls show he has a six-point lead over Angle, contrary to public polls showing it to be neck-and-neck.
The Democratic sources insisted that lead has held for several days, but senior Republican sources shot back that they don't believe the internal Reid numbers.
"No way," said a top Republican source. "It's literally a dead heat."
But even with a six-point lead, Reid is facing one of the most challenging reelection campaigns of his long career. A dire economic situation and the anti-Washington sentiment sweeping the nation have given Angle, a former state assemblywoman, a leg up in her bid to unseat the Senate Majority leader.
And as can be expected in one of the most hotly contested races in the country, the candidates have been engaging in an increasingly bitter war of words – and ads – as the election nears.
Reid has repeatedly called Angle "extreme and dangerous" - a charge he repeated on Saturday. A major union group also launched a television ad for Reid this week calling Angle's conservative views "bad for women," saying she is "too dangerous to have real power over real people."
The Angle campaign, meanwhile, released four ads this week alone hammering Reid's personal wealth, charging that he is out of touch with Nevadans because he lives in a Washington D.C. Ritz-Carlton condo while his state has the highest foreclosure rate in the country.
Angle has also repeatedly told the senior Senator that he needs to "man up," and take responsibility for issues such as the economy and social security.
During a debate last week, Reid called Angle's attack on his personal finances a "low-blow," retorting, "I was a very successful lawyer. I did a very good job of investing."
He also denounced her "man up" mantra.
"Whether it was in the street, in a ring, or in the senate. My manhood has never been in question," Reid, a former boxer, told CNN.
