On Feb 4, 2012, Edison polled 1,584 Republican Caucus voters in Nevada to determine their candidate choice and the reasons for their preference. Our Entrance Polls, conducted on behalf of the National Election Pool (NEP), showed Mitt Romney to be the winner, followed by Newt Gingrich in second, and Ron Paul in third.

Republican Turnout in Nevada was a total of 32,864. Edison’s election team polled 25 polling locations, and our entrance polls were used to determine key information from voters, including demographic data, important issues and the “electability” of the various candidates.
