Barack Obama Crushed John McCain in Nevada

John Kerry took Clark County by roughly 36,500 votes in 2004, and Barack Obama took it by 123,000 votes and won by 20% there. In Washoe County, Obama was on his way to another crushing victory.

Overall, Obama carried Nevada by a crushing double digit win.

Democrat Dina Titus knocked off incumbent House Republican Jon Porter in NV-03, certainly involving Obama coattails. Jill Derby’s race was less certain, with incumbent Dean Heller holding a six point lead but not called.

It wasn’t even close in the Nate Silver State.
