WELCOME TO THE WEEKLY REPORT This week: 1. GOP convention post-mortem 2. Prediction of the week: What will AG Adam Laxalt be doing in 2018? 3. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week On the eve of the Philadelphia coronation of Hillary Clinton (wait, who is that guy with the unkempt white hair sneaking up behind her during her acceptance speech?) and after the Disaster in Cleveland (I alone am allowed to say that), I asked my insiders to reflect on the Republicans, look ahead to Adam Laxalt’s...

My thoughts on the new Monmouth poll showing the presidential and Senate races close (Hillary up 4, Joe Heck up 2) in Nevada: 1. Forty-four percent (!) of Nevada voters say they think Hillary committed a crime. Danger, Will Robinson! 2. Clinton and Trump fave/unfaves almost identical. That's surprising and not good for her. 3. More than half of the voters (55 percent) have "no opinion" on the two-term attorney general, Catherine Cortez Masto -- and that's AFTER hundreds of thousands of dollars...
UPDATED, 2:15 PM, 7/11/16: It may be even worse than it looks for the GOP, if history is a guide. I have already showed you how far ahead of the last two presidential cycles the Democrats are. But because they have so many groups doing voter registration this time -- locals such as the Culinary as well as national activists -- and the GOP only really has the party (such as it is) and Engage NV, consider what could happen during the next four months: ►On July 1, 2008, the GOP deficit was 55,560...
GOP Rep. Cresent Hardy, considered one of the more vulnerable incumbents in the country, is in a dead heat with Democratic state Sen. Ruben Kihuen, according to a new poll from the National Republican Congressional Committee. Hardy has 38 percent and Kihuen has 36 percent, meaning that about a quarter of the electorate chose a minor candidate or is undecided. The survey also shows Donald Trump ahead of Hillary Clinton by 7 percent in the strongly Democratic district that President Obama twice...
