Entrance polls are often wrong. But sometimes they are right. And since patience was never one of your virtues, here’s what early reports suggest about the race between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders in Nevada.


1. The race is as tight as the jeans in Williamsburg.

2. Bernie Sanders may have taken a giant brick out of Clinton’s “firewall.”

Clinton’s rock-solid support from nonwhite voters is supposed to be an insurmountable obstacle laid across Sanders’s path to the nomination. Although Clinton’s domination with African-American voters has held up since the Vermont senator’s big win in New Hampshire, entrance polls show Hispanics may be more open to political revolution.

Or maybe not:

3. Democratic voters aren’t nearly as ideologically divided in Nevada as they are on Twitter.

4. Voters looking for an experienced candidate with the best chance to win in November are ready for Hillary; those who are looking for an honest candidate that “cares about people like me” are feeling the Bern.

5. The kids are still Berning.

6. Nevada Democrats have gotten more liberal.
