I live in the Reno area. ABC affiliate reported today at 5:30 AM, and repeated up to 7 AM:
96% reporting :
Pete B 1960
That dds up to 14,059 TOTAL!!! After 36 hours plus of time to report the votes.
Media is reporting that over 70,000 voted in ‘early voting’...and about 25,000 voted on Saturday in a very poor turnout.
If about 100,000 voters were involved-—how can 96% of “The Vote” tally up to 14,059 votes cast????
I am completely baffled.
Democrat party runs Nevada, and if this is their best math -— how can this state survive with them controlling the state budget???
“I am completely baffled.”
the numbers being reported are county convention delegates won (not raw voter totals), which ultimately will reflect the number of national convention delegates won after those county convention delegates vote at their individual county conventions to divvy up the county delegates to send to the state convention where the ultimate vote is taken to divvy up the state’s national convention delegates ... because of the 15% threshold to receive delegates, only bernie and biden will end up with any national convention delegates from nevada (btw, that 15% threshold applies in all Dem state primary/caucuses)
the whole caucus system is completely archaic and subject to massive manipulation by insiders at the precinct level, which is why both Dems and Pubs voted to abolish the caucus system for presidential nominees in Colorado in favor of restoring a primary vote by ALL registered voters, not just a few insiders ... given the disaster in iowa and the unreported disaster in nevada, my guess is that the DNC will soon move to abolish the few remaining caucuses in the nation ...
Chicago to Texas——How many votes do ya need ?
According to the Nevada registered voter website there ate 617,000 registered Democrats in Nevada and not quit 100k bothered to go vote.... show how energized they are NOT.
“According to the Nevada registered voter website there are 617,000 registered Democrats in Nevada and not quite 100k bothered to go vote.... show how energized they are NOT.”
are you kidding me? one out of six attending caucus is a STUNNING turnout! ... sounds like you’ve never attended a caucus ... i have, and you have to be REALLY dedicated to go to one ...you have to give up your Saturday, find someone to take care of your kids, figure where your caucus site is, drive to it, park, and then go through hours of REALLY boring BS, vote NON-SECRETLY, hassle openly with those whom disagree with you, and then get back in the car and drive home ...
