Las Vegas, NV – Nevadans are the new kids on the block when it comes to early presidential caucuses, but a new poll finds they're catching on quickly. One in four Democrats now say they plan to vote in the state caucuses in Nevada and that's only a couple points behind the number of people making similar plans in Iowa, a long-time early caucus state. The number is lower for Nevada Republicans, with about 1 in 8 expecting to attend. And when it comes to deciding on a candidate, the report found there's still a lot of indecision. A.A.R.P.'s Deborah Moore says that varies somewhat along party lines.

"Democrats that we surveyed indicated a more settled approach to their candidates than the Republicans did. The Republicans were more in flux."

Moore says nine out of ten A.A.R.P. members in Nevada said they were concerned about financial security and eight in ten wanted candidates to do more to improve health care.

She adds that more than 1,000 likely voters were surveyed this month and the good news is more Nevadans plan to take part in the process.

"Of Democrats who responded, 24 percent said they are absolutely certain they plan to attend the caucus, as did 12 percent of Republicans, which is an increase of several percentage points for both parties."

Moore says those numbers would likely be higher if Nevadans just had to walk into a voting booth and select a single candidate. Caucus voting is complex, but she says Nevadans are keeping pace.

"We compare quite favorably to Iowa, considering how long Iowa has been doing early caucus and what a new process this is for the state of Nevada."
