Who won the Nevada Democratic caucus Saturday? Bernie Sanders upbeat despite Hillary Clinton win

Update: A win for Hillary Clinton in Nevada, though not huge as she was expecting. Se. Bernie Sanders has conceded and loss. In a statement he said, “I am very proud of the campaign we ran. Five weeks ago we were 25 points behind and we ended up in a very close election. And we probably will leave Nevada with a solid share of the delegates,” he said. “I am also proud of the fact that we have brought many working people and young people into the political process and believe that we have the wind at our back as we head toward Super Tuesday. I want to thank the people of Nevada for their support that they have given us and the boost that their support will give us as we go forward.”

Who will win the Nevada caucus? This is a question that can be answered only when all the votes of the caucus goers are accounted for.

Despite leading comfortably from here merely weeks ago, the fight is very close with Hillary Clinton maintaining merely one percent lead over her only rival 74-year old Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

A latest CBS News report has this to say about Nevada caucus, “Hillary Clinton faces a serious threat in Nevada with Bernie Sanders. Polls show that Sanders is popular among young voters in Nevada, and the state’s caucus is expected to be a very close one. In the Iowa caucus, Sanders and Clinton were in a virtual tie, forcing some caucus sites to actually flip a coin”.

This means that the Nevada Democratic caucus is going to be very close. Results are set to start coming later this afternoon, experts are predicting what will be a very close race between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders for the 35 delegates the state has to offer.

In the meantime scene seems to be changing pretty fast. Earlier Bernie Sanders seemed to have a slight edge. Now as almost 35 percent of the results are in, Hillary Clinton has inched into the lead, 51 percent to 48 percent. Just like in Iowa earlier this month, Nevada’s Democratic caucus is going to go down to the wire.

On the other hand latest polls from CNN and MSNBC suggest that the Nevada Democratic electorate is moving significantly to the left. Sixty-nine percent of caucus-goers identify as “very liberal,” up from 45 percent eight years ago. More early entrance-poll data: more than 80 percent of Nevada voters who place a high value on “honesty and trustworthiness” are going with Bernie Sanders. Ninety-two percent of Nevada Democrats who want a candidate with the “right experience” to be president are voting for Hillary Clinton. Both categories are believed to represent about 25 percent. So stay tuned with latest update.
