Welcome to the state of Clark


Interactive version available at: http://silverstateelection.com/USPresidential/

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.

    State of Clark, how about State of Reid? No doubt his machine pulled this off, hopefully it burned itself out. The Democrat winners owe him but let’s hope they become their own person.

  2. It is past time to clean up the Republican party in Nevada. They actually believe they did a good job. They did a lousy job and let the progressives run right over them. Time for change and draining the swamp in Nevada.

  3. Barbara says:

    The Casino moguls should take note of what they are creating. It will not take long for the Democratic party to realize that with the immigrant population, they will control all elections in Nevada. At that point they will be able to enact any laws they want – increase in min. wage, required family leave, etc. The government leviathan has no bounds once the means of expanding it is given to the electorate.

    The Republican party leadership who cooperated in passing the lefts agenda (ACA, gross receipts tax, special tax breaks for special interests) should now be aware that they will always be a minority party in NV. Instead of Welcome to the state of Clark, I would suggest welcome to the state of NevCal. Check your individual freedom at the state line as you enter.

    The rural counties in the state contribute nothing and are a tax on the rest of us. I would think that many libertarians would deny them the vote as they are parasitical. I believe some libertarians have offered that idea up in the past.

  5. Vernon Clayson says:

    deleted should rethinks his opinion, greater minds than his developed the one man – one vote notion. Denying rural citizens is how different than the long ago denying blacks, women, and Indians before they were considered citizens, the right to vote?? It’s bad enough that men like Harry Reid cn deny political office to Republicans through their machinations, it’s even worse that Republicans are so complacent they permit these machinations, how cand anyone deny the hard working rural population their right to vote. Hey, they might even vote Democrat.

  6. you hit the nail on the head Vernon.

  7. deleted says:

    So Vernon I take it you disagree with the oft expressed libertarian philosophy that says only the “contributors” ought to have a right to vote? I mean, you do understand I hope that the costs to the rest of the state, to support those rural folks FAR EXCEEDS their meager contributions and that on a pay in/take out basis, they are seriously owing?

    Moreover, I wonder if you know that this very page has posters that believe a mans right to vote is contingent on the above analysis, which, in this case, would mean no vote for rural folks.

  8. Look at the net. More is spent in Clark than anywhere else.

  9. Steve says:

    Par for the course, Patrick is full of crap.

  10. deleted says:

    More is spent per capita in rural counties that is taken in taxes.

    As I said, they are parasites, and libertarians have said that as such, they ought to have no right to vote.

  11. deleted says:

    And Steve, you’re a fuking idiot.

  12. Steve says:

    Your candidate is a perfect reflection of you, Patrick.
    A whiny little crybaby, wannabe bully who slunk off and hid until her betters, forced her to react today. Even then, all she did was lament the “painful loss” she was handed.
    Your candidate is perfect for you, a wannabe bully.

    Assholes don’t lie, bullies run and hide.

  13. Steve says:

    This is what a concession speech is SUPPOSED to be.
    All Clinton did was whine.
    In this excerpt, Bernie Sanders nails it to the wall.

    “Bernie Sanders says he’s prepared to work with Donald Trump to help the working class, but will “vigorously oppose” other policies promised by the president-elect.

    The independent Vermont senator has released a statement noting Trump “tapped into the anger of a declining middle class that is sick and tired of establishment economics, establishment politics and the establishment media.”

    He says that if Trump “is serious about pursuing policies that improve the lives of working families in this country, I and other progressives are prepared to work with him.”

    But Sanders adds that if Trump “pursues racist, sexist, xenophobic and anti-environment policies, we will vigorously oppose him.”

  14. Whiner blames loss on sexism:

  15. Steve says:

    But, Trump is a sexist……??

  16. deleted says:

    Sexist? Obviously.

  17. deleted says:

    Racist Romney blamed his honest racism for his loss to Obama when all he should have done was lie about it. Concession speech.

  18. Steve says:

    Bill Clinton…..Monica, Gennifer, Dolly et al ……yeah, Patrick…….obvious.

  19. Steve says:

    Paula Jones phoned in, she wants her sexist accusation comments added to Patricks bullshit!

    Fuking idiot

  20. deleted says:

    And I didn’t notice that last part about secession until now Thomas but you might be on to something; CC truly ought to consider it as continuing to support the rural counties makes little sense.

    They want to continue to operate as if they are financially independent, and thumb their political noses at the rest of the tax paying state, let them be on their way.

    Maybe they’ll learn to stop hitting the hands that keep feeding them.

  21. Steve says:

    Watching Patrick whine,

    is FUN!

  22. Steve says:

    Commentary: The unbearable smugness of the press

    The mood in the Washington press corps is bleak, and deservedly so.

    It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that, with a few exceptions, we were all tacitly or explicitly #WithHer, which has led to a certain anguish in the face of Donald Trump’s victory. More than that and more importantly, we also missed the story, after having spent months mocking the people who had a better sense of what was going on.


  23. Athos says:

    I love that electoral map! Trump has more coverage than Verizon!

    “Can you hear me NOW?”

  24. Anonymous says:

    The president-elects comments after President Obama was first elected.

    “Donald Trump made some of the most controversial comments of the night, calling the election a “total sham and a travesty” on Twitter.

    “We can’t let this happen. We should march on Washington and stop this travesty,” he wrote. “Let’s fight like hell and stop this great and disgusting injustice! The world is laughing at us.”

    He deleted others that called for “revolution,”

    I hope that when the calls come out for the “president-elects” impeachment or worse, at least Donald will understand.


  25. Steve says:

    Eight year old tweets are “Trumped” by burning and destroying actual property in “protest” of an outcome you do not like.

    Start tweeting, stop burning. Might make you appear as adult as TEA was.

  26. Rincon says:

    Funny, I thought our elected officials served the people, not the land.

    If there are areas in the red counties that are blue, e.g., cities, then should they secede from their counties? Or should red neighborhoods in blue cities secede from those cities? Hell, if we get enough secessions going, we could be just like the European Union. One can only hope!

  27. deleted says:

    Trust me Rincon, NONE of the parasitical, welfare, red counties, states, or cities have intention of removing their lips from their “socialist” blue “mommies” teats.

    I mean, who would they blame then for their misery?

  28. Steve says:

    Yeah, that’s why you libs are burning Oakland, you want to punish the rurals!
