As of 9:40 PM (Pacific) Saturday night, The New York Times reports that the Nevada Democratic Caucuses went 52.7% for Hillary and 47.2% for Bernie, with about 5% of precincts left to be accounted for.
Some sources are still spinning it as “Hillary eked out a win.” I don’t know about that – in most elections, a 5½ point spread is usually considered a pretty decisive victory. Sure, Bernie put in a good showing, but Hillary’s victory wasn’t “eked out.” Not by a long shot.Heck, even Fox News handed it to her - and they seem to have a whole separate bureau specifically dedicated to identifying and promoting each and every story's possible anti-Hillary angles.

About 80,000 folks* participated in Nevada's Democratic caucuses this year. Yes, that’s about a 33% decline from 2008 (which had almost 120,000 turn out.) But 2008 was a unicorn.
