Although non-partisan registration has grown in Nevada since 2008, the state's overwhelming Democratic surge has gone counter to a trend in many states. This afternnon, statistics guru Nate Silver of The New York Times put out a series of Tweets about trends in the 15 states that track voter registration every month. Most recent Tweet at top: Nate Silver @fivethirtyeight Among the swing states on that list (NV+CO+FL+IA+PA+NC): Dems +238,652 voter regs since 7/1; GOP +154,724; indies +281,825...
Three weeks from early voting, and we have a city councilman trying to affect legislative races, a Hispanic organization getting...organized, a state Senate candidate getting his own PAC and a Big Pharma group coming to Nevada: Latino BIZPAC -- After all of these years and with fewer than 40 days left until the election, theLatin Chamber of Commerce has set up a political action committee. Longtime boss Otto Merida and businessman Brian Ayala are listed on the registration form. The Silver...
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid penned a pair of op-eds in Nevada papers today -- one to go directly after Mitt Romney and the other to promote renewable energy while firing a parenthetical barb at Sen. Dean Heller. The pieces in the Sun and the Gazette-Journal are the latest examples of an aggressive partisan who seems to miss the hurly burly of the campaign season. The Sun op-ed attacks Romney over the 47 percent video and -- again -- his tax returns, saying his release of "a measly two...
UPDATED BELOW THE CHART The Huffington Post has a nice chart for Nevada (and all other states) on the presidential race since the beginning of the year. You will see that President Obama has never been behind in any public poll here. I do have a problem with any poll average because bad data pollutes it. But one argument is that there are so many polls that the bad data is diluted -- unless, of course, it's like 2010 when all of the data here indicated that Sharron Angle would defeat Harry Reid...
Welcome to The Weekly Report, where you will find exclusive new, analysis and commentary you won’t find anywhere else. I will be constantly adding to and changing what you can find here, with more features as time goes on. In this inaugural edition, my weekly column focuses on the flood of polling data this week and what it really means, the state of the major races, a return of the Insider Club Inductee feature from the old, printed Ralston Report, and a selection of news items. New features...
Republicans are planning a rally Sunday "to help (President Obama) feel less welcome" near Desert Pines High School, where the president is speaking late in the day. That's according to an email I have obtained. It's no surprise the GOP is planning such an attempt to distract the media -- and my guess is it will not be the last one of the president's three-day sojourn in Southern Nevada. Other activities to try to show Nevada still matters to the Romney campaign include Mitt's wife, Ann,...
