According to a preliminary survey, Mitt Romney has almost unanimously has the support of Nevada’s Mormon community. This could possibly be the easy victory for Mitt Romney in the Nevada caucuses.
So far, Mormons have made up a quarter of those that are attending the GOP caucuses in Nevada. Over nine out of ten Mormons would be voting for Romney according to the early results conducted by The Associated Press. However, Romney’s Mormon faith has been cited as a problem by some Republican voters.
The narrow majority identified themselves as Republicans. Romney was backed by a bulk of those voters. Ron Paul received support from two-thirds of independents. However, independents only made up ten percent of caucus goers. Both Romney and Paul were the only two candidates to vigorously campaign in Nevada.
Illegal immigration and the economy were the top problems facing the country according to Nevada Republicans. Iraq and terrorism had little importance.
