Dems In Dead Heat In Nevada But Obama Slightly Ahead

A new poll by the Reno Gazette-Journal shows the three top Democratic presidential candidates in a dead heat going into Saturday's Nevada Democratic caucuses.
The survey conducted for the newspaper shows Barack Obama with 32-percent, Hillary Clinton with 30-percent and John Edwards with 27-percent.
On the Republican side, John McCain was on top 22-percent.
Rudy Giuliani was second with 18-percent; Mike Huckabee, 16-percent; and Mitt Romney, 15-percent.
The poll was conducted Jan. 11 to Jan. 13 , with samples of 500 likely Democratic caucus-goers and 500 likely Republican caucus-goers statewide by Maryland-based Research 2000.
The margin of error is 4.5 percentage points. Information from: Reno Gazette-Journal.
I'm not sure if this poll takes into account the lawsuit from the Clinton camp that is attempting to shut down at-large caucusing at casinos on the Las Vegas strip. Having their chance to caucus taken away from supporters of Clinton after the culinary union endorsed Obama has become a battle cry from the union, as evidenced by a news conference by D. Taylor, Secretary-Treasurer of the Culinary Union. According to Taylor, these same people that filed the lawsuit, were in favor of it when the idea was thought up nine months ago. When their candidate wasn't endorsed, sour grapes made them file suit, since they know that ultimately these caucusing sites will decide who the winner is.
