NV EARLY VOTING: GOP NARROWLY WINS WASHOE
Nevada Secretary of State ^ | 11/3/2012

Posted on 11/03/2012 6:08:42 PM PDT by sf4dubya

This is pretty big news: GOP won combined Early Voting / Absentee Ballot returns in every single Nevada county including Washoe (Reno) and except Clark (Las Vegas). Obama's ground game outside of Las Vegas was decimated and is nothing compared to what he had four years ago. People were waiting on line in Reno to vote early for hours yesterday.

58.4% of Democrats voted statewide.

59.5% of Republicans voted statewide.

Obama is in big trouble in Nevada. The unions in Las Vegas are going to pull out all the stops, and they have roughly a 48k lead, but it will be the independent and third party registered voters that decide the results of this state.

Reid just shot off his mouth vowing that Senate Democrats would vehemently oppose Romney’s agenda. That’s the type of rhetoric independents hate to hear.

Maybe he’s in a foul mood because he knows what’s coming.

What this actually says is D+7 in early ballots cast, which is the same as 2008 early voting.

That was also my first thought when I saw the title of this thread.

This is what is on my mind: how much gas is left in the SEIU tank?

These Clark numbers may already reflect it in order to try to preload the numbs. That is what I am wondering about. They might have already voted.

Adrian Gray said on Twitter that Washoe finished over 100 votes AHEAD of where Bush was in 04. Now, I don’t think he adjusted for population growth but a lead is a lead.

What’s your math? Rs lead by 5% statewide in EV according to this. Yet someone above says Ds lead by 48k votes.

Anecdotal at best dubya, but my brother-in-law works on the strip and tells me that the typical vans and buses for the SEIU and Culinary workers have been in full swing since the first day of early voting. He didn’t recall the BIG PUSH made so early. Like I said...anecdotal.

What this actually says is D+7 in early ballots cast, which is the same as 2008 early voting.

In 2008, Obama took most of the Independents. This data shows Independents with 19% of the early vote or 134,000. If Romney takes even 35% of those, he is virtually tied with Obama in early voting (assuming that in early voting Dems are voting for Obama and Reps are voting for Romney).

Obama's campaign made early voting a big part of its ground game. If they've shot the "whole load" in early voting, then Romney has more than a fighting chance here.

In 2008, Obama got 379,000 votes in Clark County and McCain got 256,000. In 2008, Obama won Clark County 58% to 40% for McCain.

In 2012 early voting, Dems register 231,000 votes in Clark County and Republicans register 161,000.

That adds some perspective.

We need Barone to break this down.

Lots of confusion here. 2008, dems were 47% and reps 35% in washoe. Obama won staewide by 11. So washoe is a bellwether. In 2012, reps barely ahead in WASHOE. thats important.

Now clark. They creamed us in 2008 by 51 to 30 in ev dems to reps. Now 2012, dems 47% and reps 33%. This is an improvement over 2008 by a lot b
ut the question to me is it enough?

Outstate is obviously big romney.

WILL WASHOE BE THE BELLWETHET AGAIN.

I am looking at the box in the far bottom right corner labeled “Total Turnout”. It shows D44, R37, I19. If that number isn’t what I think it is, please let me know!

I must be missing something in these numbers. It shows that the breakdown is:

Rat - 307, 877
Rep - 259, 913
Ind - 134, 055

Dems and Reps don't tell the whole story here. About 20% of the EV in both '08 and '12 are Independents. In '08 they went massively for Obama. In '12 Romney should do well with them.

Found some 2008 numbers to compare here http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2124190/posts

Doing math on early vote only(not absentee)
Clark county
2008: dems: 51.9% reps: 30.6%
2010: dems: 48.2% reps: 32.2%
Net 5.3% swing

Washoe county
2008: dems: 47.1% reps: 35.3%
2010: dems: 40.5% reps: 39.9%
11.2% swing

This is shaping up to be a tough state to flip for Romney we know he will far outperform McCain but the expanding democratic demographics in las Vegas just make it tough. Obama won it in 2008 by 12.5% so the good news is that in Ohio he only won by about 4% which means a much easier flip than Nevada. The trends are on Romney’s side for the electoral math and the trends in early voting but Nevada is just tougher due to the minority strengths Obama has in a state like this.

Got a link for the D+7 in 2008. The SOS site doesn’t list early voting by party in 2008 though they do in 2012. According toPolitico Dems won early voting in Washoe in 2008 by 12 points. Republicans have a small majority in Washoe this time. Thats a 13 point swing in Washoe.

You know what? I was mistaken about the 2008 margin. The number I was looking at is a 2012 number found here:
