Will Key Union's Non-Endorsement Help Sanders Or Biden In Nevada? | The 11th Hour | MSNBC
Victoria what are you going to be watching as Saturday's vote comes in if we ever are sure of Saturday's vote in

Nevada

there are so many unknowns when I look at

Nevada

to begin with the polling is infamously off given the nature of the population of

Nevada

the tends to be transient and the off

hour

s that people hold we also see the fact that caucuses by their very nature aren't as predictable as primaries as your traditional electoral contests and lastly for me Braden and perhaps

the biggest issue is the fact that we don't have the centering force of a

union

endorsement

so in 2008 we had a very strong

Union

endorsement

from the culinary

Union

that has the largest membership in Las Vegas and in

Nevada

in general endorsing President Obama in 2012 they did not endorse and we saw a lot of frenzy over is it is it

Sanders

is it Clinton that has that support and to this day we really don't know for example who Latinos who make up the majority of the

Union

went for today
we again see a lack of an

endorsement

from the culinary

Union

so this makes the unknown of who is going to surface to the top even more we see in the polls that

Sanders

is doing well so you know if I'm a betting woman I'm gonna say that

Sanders

has the advantage but the real question mark is where it is

Biden

going to land so I think that for me is the biggest question and also understanding that the Latino population that

Sanders

has been getting a lot of support from is young and young
folks and Latinos traditionally are the ones with the lowest turnout rates we've seen them increasing in the last election but this is yet again another unknown if they're gonna walk the walk of fame I'm going to turnout for this person Tamara the professor raised a great question there and that is with the pointed lack of an

endorsement

by the culinary Workers

Union

the men and women who make Las Vegas go and their pointed criticism of Bernie do they open Elaine for someone does the

lack of

endorsement

mean good news for any of the Democrats in this race well somewhat counter-intuitively I would argue that it was actually good news for Bernie

Sanders

that they didn't endorse because although they were pretty pointed in their criticism of Medicare for all and that aims both at

Sanders

and Warren to a somewhat lesser extent the the fact is they ultimately didn't come out and endorse someone they didn't pick anyone from you know I'm sort of thinking if this
race now is there's the Bernie

Sanders

Lane and there's the everyone else Lane and and they didn't pick someone from the everyone else Lane and so you know there there is not certainty from from the culinary

Union

about who they would want their members to support i I went to an early caucus location at the culinary

union

headquarters interestingly most of the people that came into to early caucus were not members of the

Union

but it was just a convenient location for them but
clearly that the

union

is is you know facilitating polling plate or not polling places but caucus sites in in various casinos on the strip making sure that their membership is able to caucus even though it's pretty inconvenient and comes in the middle of the workday for a lot of people on a Saturday but also this this question about turnout is and and whether polls can be accurate in in this state is is thrown off even more because what is a likely caucus-goers already in the in the first

two days of early caucusing 26,000 people have turned out yeah so we read Victoria are we correct if we build this as in effect the debut of minority voting in the 2020 cycle it is if you look at

Nevada

where we have thirty percent of the Latino population they make up 20 percent of the electorate this is much more of a mirror of who America is the African American population is still relatively low compared to the average nationally but you see the preference of of Latinos coming out and and
and let me just say that Latinos are not a monolith there's diversity within the Latino community ideologically speaking in terms of partisanship but at least we're getting the voice of this segment of the population heard at this point hey there I'm Chris Hayes from MSNBC thanks for watching MSNBC on YouTube if you want to keep up to date with the videos we're putting out you can click subscribe just below me or click over on this list to see lots of other great videos
