Past Nevada caucus winners

LAS VEGAS – Nevada’s presidential caucuses date back nearly four decades.

But their stature as an early-voting state in the presidential nominating calendar and the first western state to hold a contest in the White House race is much more recent.

In 2008 the Democratic National Committee moved Nevada near the top of the primary calendar – behind Iowa and New Hampshire – giving the state the "first in the West" designation.


The move was made to reflect Nevada’s role as an electoral bellwether state as well as to showcase the growing importance of the West.

The move was also made to better represent the Democratic Party’s increasingly diverse electorate. Addling Nevada, with its vibrant Spanish-speaking population, to the mix with South Carolina, with a large African American Democratic electorate, helped counterbalance the overwhelmingly white states of Iowa and New Hampshire.

Here’s a look at the winners of the caucuses dating back to 2008.



Hillary Clinton 51 percent, Barack Obama 45 percent, John Edwards 4 percent


Mitt Romney 51 percent, Ron Paul 14 percent, John McCain 13 percent, Mike Huckabee 8 percent, Fred Thompson 8 percent, Rudy Giuliani 4 percent, Duncan Hunter 2 percent



President Barack Obama 98 percent, uncommitted 1 percent


Mitt Romney 50 percent, Newt Gingrich 21 percent, Ron Paul 19 percent, Rick Santorum 10 percent



Hillary Clinton 53 percent, Bernie Sanders 47 percent


Donald Trump 46 percent, Marco Rubio 24 percent, Ted Cruz 21 percent, Ben Carson 5 percent, John Kasich 4 percent

Or (another similitude) is that of a rain-laden cloud from the sky: In it are zones of darkness, and thunder and lightning: They press their fingers in their ears to keep out the stunning thunder-clap, the while they are in terror of death.
