Trump Achieves Overwhelming Victory in Nevada Caucus

  • Former Pres. Donald Trump overwhelmingly won the Nevada Republican Caucus on Thursday, receiving more than 99% of votes cast. Trump only faced an unknown candidate (Ryan Binkley) on the ballot. BBC News (LR: 3 CP: 5)
  • Trump will win all 26 delegates from Nevada. With victories in Nevada, Iowa, and New Hampshire, Trump is gaining momentum to receive the Republican nomination for the presidential election. BBC News (LR: 3 CP: 5)
  • The only remaining candidate for the nomination, Nikki Haley, opted out of the caucus — claiming that Nevada Republican Party officials had rigged the process to Trump's advantage. Instead, she took part in the state's primary election on Tuesday. New York Times (LR: 2 CP: 5)
  • In the GOP primary election, Haley finished second, losing to the listed alternative "none of these candidates." Daily Mail (LR: 5 CP: 5)
  • Candidates were not allowed to compete in both races under state GOP rules, and the primary was only conducted to comply with a Nevada law requiring state-run primaries. In that contest, Trump voters chose "none of these candidates." CNN (LR: 2 CP: 5)
  • The next GOP presidential primary is set for Feb. 24 in South Carolina — Haley's home state. The former South Carolina Governor pledged to continue in the race, saying "Voters want an election, not a coronation." BBC News (LR: 3 CP: 5)

Pro-Trump narrative:

  • Donald Trump cruised to an expected landslide in the Nevada Caucus, a race that Nikki Haley was too scared to compete in. Trump's overwhelming support among Republican voters is palpable even when he's not listed on the ballot as Nikki Haley lost to literally nobody. The GOP primary season is effectively over, and everyone is eager to see President Trump take on Joe Biden and return to the White House.

Conservative narrative:

  • No matter the outcome of these primaries, Nikki Haley is strengthening the GOP. She is standing for true conservative values and exudes a youthful competence that's adding needed dialogue in the Republican Party. With Trump's other opposition in the GOP field gone, Haley now stands as an important voice in the party's future.

Democratic narrative:

  • All things considered, it makes no difference whatsoever how Donald Trump wins the Nevada GOP caucus. Nevada will never go to Trump in a presidential election. Trump has already lost Nevada twice, in 2016 and 2020, and in November, he will be a three-time loser in that state.

Nerd narrative:

  • There is a 97% chance Donald Trump will be the Republican nominee for the 2024 US Presidential Election, according the Metaculus prediction community.
