Poll Suggests Nevada Could Break New Political Ground

According to a poll published today, most Nevadans think a qualified presidential candidate could gain support in the state regardless of whether they were black, a woman or a Mormon.

Of 600 likely voters surveyed, 69 percent said they think Nevadans would vote for a qualified presidential candidate if he or she were black. Eighteen percent said Nevadans would have reservations voting for a black candidate.

That compares with 71 percent who said Nevadans would vote for a
female candidate and 66 percent who said Nevadans would vote for a
Mormon candidate.

Seventeen percent said Nevadans would have reservations voting for a woman and 21 percent said Nevadans would have reservations voting for a Mormon.

The poll, conducted from August 14th through 16th by Research 2000, has a four percent margin of error.

Democratic U-S Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, a Republican and Mormon, are vying in Nevada's second-in-the-nation, January 19th caucuses.
