trump: "we're winning, winning, winning the country'" the votes are still filtering in tonight.. but nevada republicans have spoken... donald trump wins the nevada g.o.p caucus. it's another victory for the g-o-p presidential frontrunner. yes, donald trump is the choice for the first in the west republican presidential caucuses-- collecting his third victory this primary season tonight. entrance polls show that trump did well among those who prefer a political outsider. he also picked up support from republicans who selected immigration and the economy as the top issues. so far... as the count continues to come in-- trump has a whopping 46 percent of the votes. in second right now, is florida senator marco rubio.. with 24 percent of the votes. senator ted cruz is in third.. with 20 percent. then it's doctor ben carson with 5 percent of the votes.. and ohio governor john kasich with 4 percent. nevada has 30 delegates
11:01 pm
national convention, and they're distributed proportionally based on the results of tuesday's primary. donald trump- "so tonight, folks, this was a great evening. i love this place, i love this state.' sen. ted cruz- "they're still counting the ballots, so we don't know the exact results, but i want to congratulate donald trump on a strong evening tonight." ben carson also gave a speech tonight. despite finishing second to last, told a crowd tonight that he's still in the race for the forseeable future. marco rubio nor john kasich spoke tonight. nevada is still relatively new to this whole caucusing thing.. since we just made the switch from primaries in 2008. and we have coverage of how they went... from different caucus locations all around northern nevada today. so let's check in and see how it went... ...with team coverage of campaign 2016... ryan canaday got a chance to speak with caucus-goers in carson city. and erin breen spent the day at a caucus precinct at hug high. erin lets start with you... how did things go where you were
11:02 pm
well...the good news is that the turn out was much higher than even the top republicans here expected. the bad news is the sheer number of people made for some problems. the lines formed around 4 this afternoon with doors set to open at 5. the problem at hug high school was there were a lot more people than they expected.... one volunteer told me they anticipated about 400.....they got more than a thousand. and these lines weren't just long...they were frustrating. frank:" no organization no anything else... i've been a republican for a long time but this is a cluster!" ---the registration table---- john:" there was a little bit of a bottleneck a the beginning." a little bit.... spencer: there's no handicapped line here...at all...at all! and there's a lot fo handicapped people here too." john: " we went out an grabbed the handicapped because it wasn't obvious that they could come forward so we went and
11:03 pm
donna: "they didn't even check my id or my paperwork they said they didn't need it they just wanted my name. and i'm kinda upset because basically what's the point of having all the id if they don't makse sure people are registered voters?" john: they have to show registration and i d or they turn them away." jodie yocum: we've had like no instruction don't know where to go ro what to do do we need a delegate or a commettee person and there's no one to tell us what to do." john:"i'm sure these are last minute volunteers and could use more organization ...well... at first is was a big rough." jodie yocum:"apparently i'm the chairmwoman but i don't know what to do. i got here first so they made me the chairmwoman." in the end most of the problems were ironed out.... spencer:" i did cast my ballot but only after i found the fourth room they told me to go to!" not all of the sites had problems like this...in fact this was one of the bigger ones with 20 precincts caucusing. but volunteers saw the good that overshadowed all the problems. john:"it is a great turn out though you have to say that's
11:04 pm
and here's what frustrated voters were saying.....when can we go back to a primary instead of caucuses. well...that's an issue for the legislature. covering campaign 2016 erin breen channel 2 news. thanks erin. let's check in with ryan now. ryan you were at the nugget in carson city tonight... what was it like down there? well ari much like what erin said..caucus organizers were surprised to see the amount of people who came out to participate in the caucus tonight. but unlike some of the locations here in reno..the whole process went pretty well in carson city. the scene was calm inside the nugget casino in carson city tonight as the republican caucus drew close to an end. "fill out your delegate form, give it to the precinct captain and he has his delegate." but it didn't always look that way.. when organizers opened their doors early to voters at 4p-m, the carson city caucus saw an onslaught of people for the first few hours. "i'm amazed at how many people are here, it's a great turnout."
11:05 pm
organizers expect that they saw close to 1500 people came out to participate tonight.. they knew with that much foot traffic rolling in at once...organization could get a little out of hand. "once everybody is checked in and the big rush is over, i think it'll be a lot easier, it'll flow better." and as time went on.. it did move more smoothly... but not without organizers also being open to a few suggestions from voters. "they moved the alphabet up on the wall so people could see which line to get into, i thought that was really good." "probably ten minutes, fifteen minutes in line, got a ballot and marked it and put it in the box." for some first timers, the quickness was probably the strangest part of the whole thing. they said the process didn't really feel like a caucus at all. "i was expecting oh you have to sit around for a couple hours, not at all." "i was under the impression you had to listen to a lot of stuff first then go stand in a corner or something like the other states, but this was much more of a vote than it really was a
11:06 pm
but no matter what the crowd was like, or how they chose to participate..many were just glad to be involved. "now i want to become active, politically active, i want to become a delegate and i would goes on." the nevada caucuses may be officially over, but the candidates have a lot still ahead of them.. as they move on to prepare for super tuesday next week. covering campaign canaday channel two news. despite long lines and a little confusion at some locations, chairman of the washoe county republican party adam khan says he is pleased with how things turned out at caucus precincts throughout the county. khan: "it's gone very well--much better than in 2012. we've been getting feedback from most of the sites that they've had no issues at all. and that things are going seamless. "of course there's some distatste with the idea of a caucus in general. but so far we've had a lot of good response. we've had great turnout." khan says during the last republican caucus in 2012.. only
11:07 pm
30 thousand people caucused in the entire state.. and it took three days to get the results. tonight turnout was much higher.. and winners were projected in as early as 20 to 30 minutes after the caucused wrapped tonight at 9-oclock. while the republican candidates were wrapped up in our caucuses tonight -- democrats were busy focusing on south carolina. bernie sanders aimed to dent hillary clinton's support in the palmetto state-- as he faces pressure to change the dynamics of a presidential race that is starting to trend against him. sanders also accused donald trump and others of forming a "racist effort" to delegitimize the president. presidential candidate: "my dad came from poland. i'm running for president. guess what? no one's asked for my birth certificate. maybe it's the color of my skin." sanders is under pressure to improve his standing among minorities before south carolina's primary-- which could tilt the momentum of the democratic white house race toward clinton. but polls suggest voters struggle with clinton's trustworthiness.
11:08 pm
over her handling of the benghazi attack and her private email server scandal. clinton says if elected -- she will not lie. presidential candidate: "the facts are that every single time somebody has hurled these charges against me, which they have done, it has proved to be nothing." and the campaigning is far from over. so please stay with channel 2 news and "cbs news" for campaign 2016 continuing coverage.. all the way through november.
