With the Nevada Caucus tomorrow night, Mitt Romney is set to win another huge victory. Romney has an incredible 25 point lead according the PPP recent poll. From PPP:
Mitt Romney is headed for a dominant victory in Nevada on Saturday. PPP finds him polling at 50% to 25% for Newt Gingrich, 15% for Ron Paul, and 8% for Rick Santorum.
Certainly in Nevada the Mormon vote will get a lot of attention and Romney leads Paul 78-14 with that group, which we project to account for 20% of the vote. But Romney’s dominance in Nevada goes well beyond that. He’s winning voters describing as ‘very conservative,’ a group he’s had huge amount of trouble with in other states, by a 43-34 margin over Gingrich. He’s also winning men, women, Hispanics, whites, and every age group that we track. This will be a pretty thorough victory for him.
The results of this PPP poll fairly closely match the Las Vegas Review-Journal poll yesterday that had Romney winning by 20 points.
The Nevada Caucus night is unlikely to generate the same amount of media excitement as the other four contests so far. It is a small event, a Romney win was always assumed because of the large Mormon vote, and it comes so soon after Florida there was little campaigning in the state. Still, another big win is another big win.
If Romney wins tomorrow he will be 3 for 5 in contests to date. He will pick up even more delegates and have another day where the news cycle is all about the good news for the Romney campaign.
