While everyone else’s heads are exploding or imploding over the concept of a president Trump, please allow a bit of parochialism: We should change the name of the state to Clark.
In presidential polling in Nevada, Clinton bested Trump only in Clark and Washoe. Trump won every other county, according to the Secretary of State tabulations.
In the senatorial results, Democrat Cortez Masto won only Clark County. She won statewide by 26,000 votes, but won by 80,000 votes in Clark. Republican Heck won every other county, some by more than 4-to-1.
In the 4th Congressional District, Democrat Kihuen won the district by nearly 10,000 votes but won in Clark by about 24,000. Incumbent Republican Hardy won every other county, all by about 2-to-1 or more.
Democrats won all save one Clark County state Senate seats, giving the Democrats an 11-10 majority in Carson City.
Republicans won every rural Assembly seat, while Democrats carried most races in Clark and Washoe, giving Democrats a 27-15 majority.
The gun grabbing Question 1 ballot initiative requiring background checks for almost every gun purchase or gift passed by 100,000 votes in Clark, but failed in every other county, often with 80 to 90 percent voting no.
Question 2, legalization of pot, passed only in Clark, Washoe, Nye and Story.
Time to talk secession?
Oh, as predicted here earlier, education savings accounts are now dead, thank you very much, Gov. Sandoval.
According to the NY Times, the rural/urban dichotomy is not unique to Nevada.
