NEVADA CAUCUSES ANALYSIS 2
1. Political Climate and Historical Voting Patterns
Recent Political Participation
Nevada caucuses are held by political parties to give a chance to all the registered
citizens to choose their representatives. Since the actual delegate process takes place at the
county level, the caucuses act as an indirect vote because presidential nominees are usually
selected through voting by the chosen delegates. These caucuses were dated back in 2008;
this was as a result of the bellwether Nevada's electoral status. Nevada State supports both the
republican and democratic parties (Election Central, 2020). In 2020, Nevada Democratic
Party caucuses recorded 105,195 voters. In 2016, democrats registered a significant turn out
of minority voters; this comprised more than a third of the voters. During this period Hillary

to 47.3 percent respectively hence winning the nomination. This year’s Democratic Party
held its caucus on February 22, whereby Bernie Sanders emerged victorious with 47 percent
of votes (A. B. C. News, 2020). On the other side, the Republicans decided not to hold any
caucus to support President Trump's re-election bid.
