Trump wins GOP Nevada caucuses; Rubio leads Cruz for 2nd

HOUSTON – NBC sources say Donald Trump has won the Nevada GOP caucuses Tuesday night.

Nevada has a reputation as the Wild West of politics. In 2012, only 33,000 of the state's 400,000 GOP voters turned out to caucus -- a mere 7 percent. Before the caucuses, Trump dominated Nevada's unreliable polls.

In interviews with dozens of Republican voters across the state over the last week, many said without hesitation that they were standing firmly with Trump and had given little thought to the other Republican candidates.
