“The proportion of the electorate, about 35 per cent has increased in the past five to six years. We are talking about 200,000 voters in the state of Nevada, and if Hillary Clinton won only the state of 30,000 voters, you can see how this particular voting bloc is of increasing importance, especially since they were voting kind of 50/50 Republican-Democrat in the past and now they are much more enthusiastic and favorable in the direction of the Democrats,” Emily Ekins, PhD research fellow and Director of polling at the Cato Institute, told Fox News. “This is a new constituency, I think the Democratic candidates feel like, if you call and win the voting bloc that could help win the vote in Nevada.”
