A new poll shows that most Nevada voters support big-ticket items before state lawmakers, including establishing a state lottery, capping drug prices, codifying abortion access in the state constitution and expanding gun control.

As the Oakland A’s flirt with relocating their Major League Baseball franchise to Las Vegas, a new poll indicates that a plurality of registered voters support the state spending taxpayer money to help attract the team.
Just over half of Nevadans say they approve of Gov. Joe Lombardo’s job performance four months into his term — even as a fifth of Nevadans say they still haven’t made up their mind on the state’s new Republican governor.
While Biden's approval rating in Nevada remains underwater, a new Nevada Independent / Noble Predictive Insights poll indicated that voters indeed prefer Biden to the Republican alternatives. Among likely voters, Biden leads former President Donald Trump by a substantial 8 points, 48 percent to 40 percent, and edges out Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis by a 43 percent to 42 percent margin.
Climate action is a significant concern for younger Nevadans — 50 percent of people ages 18 to 34 think the state isn’t doing enough on the issue. By comparison, just 34 percent of people 65 and older think the state isn’t doing enough.
With President Joe Biden likely to announce his re-election campaign in coming months, a new Nevada Independent / OH Predictive Insights poll finds him trailing both former President Donald Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
In the tight race for governor, a plurality of voters 50 and older identified economic issues as their top concern, including 24 percent who selected “inflation and rising prices” and 11 percent who picked “jobs and the economy.”
Still, Lombardo — who declared in a debate late last month that “for all practical purposes, this primary is over” — appears well on track to win the primary election next week and proceed to the general election against Gov. Steve Sisolak.
“Cortez Masto has been around longer. She is a Latina. There's been a lot of investment and name ID from her campaign and from others around that. So, to me, it would be logical that she does perform better,” said Andres Ramirez.
In the attorney general’s race, Tisha Black received slightly more support than Sigal Chattah (18 percent to 15 percent), but the difference between the two was within the poll’s 4.4 percent margin of error.
Political newcomer Sam Brown has made Nevada’s U.S. Senate Republican primary a two-person race, but former Attorney General Adam Laxalt remains the odds-on favorite to win the June 14 contest, according to a new Nevada Independent/OH Predictive Insights poll.
