Trend or blip? GOP cuts Clark gap by more than 8,000 voters

It happens every year -- thousands of voters knocked off the active rolls in Clark County because they have not cast ballots in several cycles and cannot be found.

It usually disproportionately hurts the Democrats, who have more transient voters -- and this month is no different: At the end of February, Democrats had a 109,000-vote edge in Nevada's most populous county; as of today, it's about 101,000. That's because the GOP lost only 13,500 voters in the so-called purge while the Democrats lost about 22,000.

The Democrats usually can recover, and this change is not because of any GOP registration drive. But for the first time in years, the statewide lead is below 60,000 for the Democrats.

Keep an eye on this. I know Harry Reid will.
