What Democrat presidential candidate will eventually win Nevada?

Will Rogers once said, “I am not a member of any organized political party. I am a Democrat.”

I would say that pretty much applies to Nevada Democrats. While Hillary Clinton won 53 percent of the votes cast on the Feb. 20 caucus day, Bernie Sanders has come away with 55 percent of the delegates chosen in county conventions Saturday to attend the state convention in May, according to the AP. What happens in May is anyone’s guess.

In Clark County, less than half the 9,000 delegates chosen in February showed up for the county convention.

In February it looked like Clinton would get 20 of the 35 delegates up for grabs for the national convention this summer, but now looks like she might get as few at 18 delegates compared to 17 for Sanders. Of course, there are also eight superdelegates who can flip or flop at whim.

According one website, this is how it breaks down by county:

 

You can’t tell the score until the game is over.

According to Wikipedia those superdelegates are:

NV superdelegates

    It ain’t over until the fat lady sings, that would be Hillary Clinton, matronly thick in the midsection. That snide aside, if we knew the names of the superdelegats we’d know well in advance how this will turn out.

  2. Just updated the post, Mr. Clayson, with that inform. I’d say they are locked on Clinton mostly.

  4. Just baiting the hook, Patrick. You bit.

    Patrick always falls for that one.

    Words are more important than ideas?

    Yeah, I’m a sucker that way. Well done.
