-Despite the national profile he's taken on this year Sheldon Adelson is still largely unknown in Nevada. 56% of voters don't enough about him to have an opinion one way or the other. He gets negative reviews from the folks who are familiar with him- 17% rate him positively to 27% with a negative opinion. Republicans narrowly like him (22/16) but Democrats are considerably more unified in their dislike of him (10/41).
-There's one thing Nevada voters across party lines can agree on: they love them some brothels. 64% think brothels should be legal to only 23% who think they should be illegal. The most striking thing in these numbers is that an equal 66% of Democrats and Republicans each think that brothels should be legal. In late March we found that only 20% of Nevada GOP voters supported gay marriage so that's an interesting take on family values there.
-Nevada voters have a more positive image of Reno than they do of Las Vegas, although both cities poll pretty well. 58% have a favorable view of Reno to 13% with a negative one. Las Vegas comes down at 53% positive and 26% unfavorable. The cities have very similar numbers among Democrats and independents. What puts Reno ahead overall is that it's at 65/7 with Republicans while Vegas gets a weaker 52/27 rating from them.
And 2 final notes from Nevada:
-Democrats lead the generic legislative ballot 43-39. Their voters are a little bit more united than the Republicans right now, and they also have a 32-30 advantage with independents.
-23% of Nevada voters believe in UFO's. 56% do not. There's an ideological divide on the issue with 'very liberal' voters at 32% the most likely to believe in them and 'very conservative' voters at 14% the least likely to.
