Jon Ralston (@RalstonReports), the man who knows Nevada politics the best, just tweeted the following:

I am hearing Democrats had huge day in Clark County today -- gained 9,600 voters, went over 70,000 lead. Waiting for final numbers...
I don't know Nevada, but Ralston has previously tweeted about Clark County (which contains Las Vegas and has about 70% of the total vote in NV) early voting numbers: "If it's 70K, Dems will be thrilled. Doubt it will be." I think this is a pretty good sign for us to carry NV. With NV, OH, and WI, Barack is reelected. It ain't over yet, and we keep on with GOTV, but things are looking pretty good...

Fri Nov 02, 2012 at 11:29 PM PT: Ralston's latest tweet: "Official Clark numbers: Dems gained 9,638 voters. Turnout was by far biggest of two weeks -- 48K. With mail tally, lead is just over 70K."

Fri Nov 02, 2012 at 11:32 PM PT: And, from @Taniel, a guy who knows his elections: "Pretty much shuts NV door on Romney"

Fri Nov 02, 2012 at 11:38 PM PT: And Ralston gives his coup de grâce to Republican trolls: "Signing off, tweeps. I know Romney folks say Ds needed to get to 80K. Silly. That was '08 # when O won NV by 12. Mitt is serious underdog."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
