While Democrats Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama camped out in Iowa, their supporters worked behind the scenes across Nevada over the weekend.
Hundreds of Clinton volunteers hit the pavement and knocked on doors to encourage Nevadans to caucus for the New York senator.
Obama supporters held Women for Barack Obama house parties to
drum up support for the Illinois senator in advance of the state's January 19th presidential caucuses.
Nevada's caucuses will be the fourth test for Democratic presidential candidates, although they have promised not to campaign in the third state, Michigan.
A poll conducted December third through fifth for the Las Vegas Review-Journal found Clinton favored by 34 percent of likely caucus-goers to Obama's 26 percent.
No other Democrat registered in double digits in the poll.
