Nevada Poll: Bernie Surging, but Women of Color Vote Still Largely Undecided

SAN FRANCISCO – She the People, a national network of women of color in politics, has released a new poll conducted by Anzalone Liszt Grove Research gauging women of color’s opinions on the Democratic Primary contenders less than one month out from the Nevada caucus. The multimodal poll surveyed Democratic women of color likely to attend the caucus and asked about their first and second choice candidates, issues that were important to them, and demographic information.


“For Biden, Sanders, Warren, and Steyer — this race is still a complete tossup. The candidate who best inspires women of color will win Nevada,” said Aimee Allison, Founder and President of She the People. “Buttigieg, however, has virtually no support from women of color, which suggests he will not win support in states like Nevada where women of color are a sizable part of the electorate and therefore has no path to win the nomination.”


Women of color make up 26% registered Democratic voters in Nevada, making them a core constituency for candidates to win the caucus and beyond, according to voter registration records.


Toplines from the poll:

  • 22% of NV women of color surveyed are undecided.
  • Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Senator Amy Klobuchar barely register with women of color in Nevada, polling at 2% and 1% respectively;
  • The top four candidates — Former Vice President Joe Biden, Senator Bernie Sanders, Tom Steyer, and Senator Elizabeth Warren — are all polling in double digits and could win this essential constituency if they successfully inspire a large number of undecided women of color voters.

“The most interesting finding of this poll is that a high percentage of likely women of color voters in Nevada are still undecided,” said Mayra Cuevas of ALG Research. “Taking into account that 26% of registered Democratic voters in the state are women of color make these numbers even more striking — it’s clear that candidates should be in overdrive right now to court the votes of this constituency.”
