Well, it looks like Senatorella has pulled it off again. With 90% of all precincts reporting, Hillary Clinton has beaten Barack Obama decisively with 51% of the vote to 45%. Never has a front-runner done so unexpectedly well! (Please, Crayzee Chris, insanity means never having to say you’re sorry for your misogynist rants! With enemies like you, who needs delegates?) Complete results here, with age and sex breakdowns for both Republicans and Democrats.
It looks like as in New Hampshire, the Alice vote is what put her over the top–59% of Democrats who caucused today were women, and fully 68% of the Democrats were 45 and older, an excellent demographic for Clinton. The OC vote, which showed up to caucus in Iowa in historic numbers and put Obama over the top, didn’t make it out to caucus in Nevada. 18-29 year-olds appeared at an anemic 13%, and Historiann’s own demographic of 30-44 mustered only a scandalously low turnout of 19%. (Whazzup, peeps? Stuck in your minivans shuttling kids from ballet to soccer to circus day-camp this morning? Did you stay up too late fooling around with TurboTax 2007 and trying to program your TiVO to record Desperate Housewives? Alexis de Tocqueville would be appalled had he lived another 149 years to see this!)
Memo to my generation: Kiss my grits!
