9648798Nevada continues to be a solid purple swing state with Democrats less than 5 points ahead of Republicans in voter registration numbers and because of the huge number of nonpartisan and third party voters making up almost 25% of all voters. Obama swept Nevada in both his elections only to see Republicans sweep off year elections in 2010 and 2014.  But with Trump as the wild card in the race, this year could see a very close election in the fall. Both parties have their work cut out for them this year.
