Sharron Angle Out With First Positive Ad: 'We Have A Fearful Society Right Now' (VIDEO)

Nevada Republican Sharron Angle is out with her first positive campaign ad in her fight to unseat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

The 30-second spot from Angle's camp features the conservative contender advocating for small government as the answer to addressing the countries economic woes.

"We have a fearful society right now," says Angle to a room full of voters in the ad. "What they're afraid of is that what we're going to be passing down to our children is not liberty and freedom, but debt and deficit. That's why you and I have an opportunity right now to change the direction of our country."

The ad from Angle comes on the heels of a flurry of attack ads released by Reid attempting to define the Tea Party-backed contender as extreme in her views.

A new poll from Public Policy Polling finds that 68 percent of voters see Angle's views as "extremist" as compared to 22 percent who feel that her beliefs are "mainstream."

Reid currently leads Angle in the Nevada Senate race by 8 points, according to a Mason-Dixon survey released last week.
