Poll on Nevada Latino voters shows wide gender gap in support for Trump

The poll was released Wednesday by Equis Labs, a firm that is launching an ongoing research project aimed at better understanding the Latino electorate. Leaders at the firm say that even though Latinos will make up the largest minority voter-eligible population in 2020, polls with small sample sizes or that treat Hispanic voters as a monolith are mischaracterizing them.

How The Indy will cover polls

What’s in a poll? That is the question we will be asking as the campaigns careen into this final two months or so. Many media outlets will publish polls based just on so-called “memos” that describe the results and are often tailored by campaigns or hyper-interested special interests.

Precinct returns prove exit polls wrong on Latino vote

Donald Trump’s win in the 2016 U.S. Presidential election caught many by surprise. To sort out how various demographic groups voted, close observers turned to the national exit poll by Edison Research, a staple of election night reporting and analysis. The exit poll dished up another shocker: It said Hillary Clinton picked up 66 percent of Latino votes, and Donald Trump earned 28 percent. What was so surprising about these figures?

The Indy Explains: Why we hired Mark Mellman to conduct The Independent Poll

After we published our first Independent Poll by Mark Mellman, who has polled for many Democrats, Republican operative Logan Dobson posted this on Twitter: “This is your first of many reminders that the guy conducting surveys for The Nevada Independent is none other than Harry Reid's own pollster.” Dobson followed up his tweet casting aspersions on Mellman’s work, with this one: “a fact ‘not noted’ in the piece touting their first poll. I think it's a relevant fact!”
