Here are the latest figures out of Nevada.
It was sort of a tepid day for us in Nevada. It's okay, it does happen every once in a while.
For these reports, I will only be tracking Clark County and Washoe County. Together, they account for just shy of 90% of all registered voters in Nevada.
First let's start with the numbers from Clark County:
Here are the cumulative early voting figures:
Dems 145,266 (48.64%)
Reps 97,973 (32.80%)
Inds 55,447 (18.56%)
Here are the additional early ballots cast since the last daily report:
Monday was the biggest day for Republicans in Clark County, by far. But don't get your undies in a bunch. We've had a few shaky days in the Iowa early voting as well and always seemed to bounce back.
Now, here are the cumulative figures, including mail-in ballots:
Dems 162,122 (48.17%)
Reps 113,138 (33.62%)
Inds 61,309 (18.22%)
As of this report, 39.51% of the 851,803 active voters in Clark County have voted. 2012 turnout is still running about 10 points higher percentage-wise than in 2008, although our advantage is not as big as in 2008.
And let's not forget how pathetic our Nevada campaign was in 2004:
If three days of early voting can constitute a trend, Democrats think the beginning of the election in Nevada bodes well for a John Kerry victory.Um yeah. So there's that. That snippet was from this article: http://www.reviewjournal.com/...
In Clark County, Democrats voted in greater numbers than Republicans on each of the first three days of the 14-day early voting period. Overall, Democrats had a lead of 2,104 voters.
Democrats increased turnout on each of the days, edging Republicans 45 to 41 percent Saturday, 45 to 40 percent Sunday and 46 to 40 percent Monday.
Now, let's take a look at Washoe County.
Here are the cumulative early voting numbers:
Dems 30,070 (42.63%)
Reps 28,613 (40.12%)
Inds 12,483 (17.26%)
Here are the new early votes since the last report:
Democrats had outstripped Republicans in early votes for the previous four reports straight, so I wouldn't read too much into this. These numbers have been close since early voting began, and Washoe has more active Republican voters than active Democratic ones. Therefore, it's a bonus that we still lead among early voters and overall voters.
Here are the cumulative figures, including mail-in ballots:
As of now, this constitutes 33.98% of the 241,459 active voters in Washoe County. We are still in a solid position in Nevada thus far.
