Donald Trump Wins Nevada Caucuses, Collecting Third Straight Victory

Donald J. Trump was declared the winner of the Nevada caucuses on Tuesday night, according to The Associated Press, gaining a third consecutive victory in an early-voting state and strengthening his position in the Republican presidential race before the wave of Super Tuesday elections on March 1.

Mr. Trump was seen as a favorite going into the contest, and his victory serves as a setback for his chief competitors, Senators Ted Cruz of Texas and Marco Rubio of Florida, who must now try to break Mr. Trump’s winning streak in the larger states that vote in the coming weeks.

Mr. Trump was declared the winner on Tuesday night, and final returns reported by The A.P. put him 22 points over his nearest challenger, Mr. Rubio, with Mr. Cruz trailing in third place. Turnout in Nevada was reported to be high compared with previous caucuses.

For Mr. Trump, the outcome in Nevada is another sign of his campaign’s durability and the breadth of his appeal: He has now handily won primary elections in New England and in the South, and a caucus fight in the far West. He won over independent voters in New Hampshire and evangelicals in South Carolina, and prevailed in Nevada, where Mormon voters and rural activists wield influence.

    shenanigans by Trump supporters at polling stations

    often no identification requested nor required

    • Heh;)

    • andycanuck

      Open caucuses like Nevada’s allow partisan gear to be worn at the stations even by volunteers handling ballots unlike the ones in e.g. New Hampshire.

          well one, work isn’t the same as volunteer two is this voter registration? need to check the definitions sections for that act and that that part of the act.
          also do Nevada laws apply to federal election issues or procedure?

        • andycanuck

          I think that’s just about federal election voting and/or federal voter registration not about voting in private party caucuses. I don’t know if there was federal voter registration going on at the same time as the GOP party voting that might have violated that law but registering isn’t the same as voting in a primary. But if all of that was illegal, then I’m sure we’ll get that information from a less-partisan site.

          See you (much) later in the day. 🙂

            it is a pro Reagan site

        • AmicusC

          and much like I thought a voter registration agency doesn’t include the people counting ballots as you need to register before you go to the polls

          NRS 293.504  Voter registration agencies: Creation; duties; duty of Secretary of State to cooperate with Secretary of Defense to allow persons to register at military recruitment offices.

          (c) The offices of the Department of Motor Vehicles;

          (d) The offices of the city and county clerks;

            Thanks for that brief, AmicusC. 🙂

          • mauser 98

            i knew that

        • But wait a minute, we’re talking about a Republican caucus here — it’s already partisan by definition.

          • mauser 98

            perhaps partisan between candidates… will leave this to others more learned

  • Dana Garcia

    Who are these jerkholes who keep voting for amnesty poodle Rubio? He’s the GOP version of Obama — talks real nice but has no record of accomplishment.

    • Exile1981

      illegals voting illegally?

    • David Murrell

      Hey, I support Marco since he stands the best chance to upset Democratic presidential nominee HiIlary Clinton. Rubio is an articulate, intelligent nominee.

    ….Obama (D-Kenya) and DoJ Loretta Lynch to rig election
    “The Obama administration is fighting in federal court to strike down an
    election rule that ensures only citizens vote. If the adminstration
    prevails it could allow non-citizens to
    vote in the upcoming presidential election. The Justice Department led
    by Attorney General Loretta Lynch is now backing the NAACP and the
    League of Women Voters.”

    • “Obama (D-Kenya) ” – Lol.

      Yeah, he’s trying to rig the election. I’m only surprised he has not yet tried to change the constitution so he can get “elected” a third time – or just stay on in the WH for life w/o elections.

        perhaps not Barry… Valerie Jarret is ruthless , plain evil
        Mooch loves AirForce 1

      • David Murrell

        Actually, the CTV News scroll mentioned that some left-lib group is trying to get a constitutional ammendment to give Barry Hussein a chance for exactly that.

        • The ultimate nightmare.

        • V10_Rob

          Considering how the Republicans in the Senate and Congress always seem to fold like dirty shirts when Obama puts on his frowny face, I could see such an ammendment passing.

          The Dems would of course back it. Hillary has become increasingly toxic, and Sanders is a loose cannon. Barry knows how the game is played, is very good about making sure everyone important gets their turn at the slop trough.

          • David Murrell

            On the positive side, such an amendment must be passed by 3/4 of a state legislatures, which would be difficult, since Republicans control most of the state governments.

            But first, “The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, …”, and then to the States.
