that donald trump needs a massive turnout today here in the silver state. nevada has about 90,000 more registered democrats than republicans so trump not only needs a massive turn out but he'll need democrats to cross party lines. nevada set a new record with early voting turnout, here are the latest numbers from the secretary of state. we have close to one and half million active voters of which 770,000 have cast their vote. that means 47.4% are "game day" voters and will be heading to polls today. out of the votes already cast 42% came and 36% came from republicans and 22% are third party. remember these numbers are registered voters meaning the democratic percentage doesn't mean a vote for hillary and the republican percentage doesn't mean a vote for trump. anything can happen today. case in point in 2012 democrats had a 14.5% voting advantage going into election day but dean heller defeated shelly berkley and dr. joe heck defeated
