Not only did Donald Trump win the Nevada GOP caucuses Tuesday by more than 20 percentage points, he won in nearly every demographic category. As Rolling Stone reported, Trump won big among “men and women, those under 45 and over 45, and white voters and nonwhites. He took every category of education, and every category of political orientation, from moderate to very conservative. He won born-again voters and non-evangelicals. He won voters who care most about immigration, and those who prioritize the economy, and those worried about terrorism, and the ones who want to rein in government spending. He won voters who are angry and voters who are merely dissatisfied. He took those who care deeply about the Supreme Court vacancy, and those who really can’t be bothered. City dwellers, suburbanites, rural folk – they all went Trump. All of them.” – Phillip Brownlee
