Raleigh, N.C. – 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.
