    Nevada Cactuses

    The third contest of this primary season is upon us.
    The recent polling has consistently seen Bernie in firm lead, but there is much uncertainty over the rest of the positions, with those below Sanders hovering around 15% or worse and thus are in danger of elimination in many of the individual caucuses/precincts.
    Two polls were released on Friday, according to 538.




    One other poll was released on Thursday.


    It will be an exciting Saturday. Good night now!

    I was severely disappointed when I realized this thread was not about Great Basin botany.

    In many ways, the Prickly Pear is one of my favorites for its distinctive shape and numerous flowers.

    But for beauty plus fighting power plus perky and deceptive name - I've got to go with the Jumping Cholla.
    When we were in Arizona, we let the kids use an apricot to test how easily they would attach themselves. It was great fun and educational.

    I had no idea you two would have so much fun with my deliberate misspelling.

    But we finally have some results. Sanders is having a very good afternoon. Joe Biden seems to be doing well too. The rest is too close to call.

    Bernie Sanders Is The Winner Of The 2020 Nevada Democratic Caucuses

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is the projected winner of Nevada’s Democratic caucuses, NBC News reported on Saturday evening.

    Nevada is the third state to vote in the Democratic primary, and has a much more diverse population than the two states that have already weighed in: Iowa, which is still grappling with recounts, and New Hampshire, which Sanders won.
    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    You don't have to get all prickly about it.

    Bernie is really sticking it to them tonight. His supporters are yuccing it up.

    Only 4% of the Cactii are reporting. Bernie's win is a projection. We will have to wait a day or even two to know for sure just how big he will win. 12 days to Super Tueday. Bernie is looking good in Texas and California. Not so good in South Carolina.

    Not so good in Florida, where Bloomberg is doing well.

    There is a possibility that after the march 17 primaries, Sanders may have the nomination all but sealed up. If so, the big question will be, who is Sander's VP pick?

    ...
    According to the FiveThirtyEight primary forecast, the single most likely outcome of the Democratic presidential primary is that no one wins a majority of pledged delegates (there is a 2 in 5, or 41 percent, chance of this). However, it is almost equally likely that Sen. Bernie Sanders will bag a majority (a 2 in 5 chance, or 37 percent). And a recent avalanche of national polls has been particularly good for Sanders.1
