Twin races will test the strength of outsiders



A poll worker hands out ballot cards during voting in the South Carolina Republican Presidential Primary on Feb. 20, 2016, in Columbia, S.C.

CHARLESTON, S.C. — Voters have begun casting their ballots in the South Carolina Republican primary Saturday morning, and Democrats in Nevada are scheduled to begin caucusing later in the day, in twin races that will test the strength of anti-establishment fervor in the 2016 presidential campaign.

Donald Trump is favored to win the Republican primary in the crucial Palmetto State, while Sen. Bernie Sanders is battling Hillary Clinton for supremacy in the Democratic caucuses in Nevada.

Establishment Republicans have yet to fully coalesce around an alternative to Trump, although Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, who stumbled in New Hampshire, hopes to rebound in Saturday’s balloting in South Carolina and cement himself in that role.

They were just two of two dozen voters who voted at the site in the first 90 minutes after polls opened. Asked why they made the early trek on an overcast Saturday morning, they pointed down at their son. “We’ve got Dan, and he’s been up for a little while,” Stephanie said, smiling.

They both cited Trump’s dominance in the campaign thus far as reasons for casting their ballots for his opponents.

“I get why people like him. He says how things are a lot of times, but I feel like he’s too much of a loose cannon,” Stephanie said. “I feel like if you put nuclear codes in a guy’s hands like that and he was having a bad day, or — I don’t know, I feel like he could mess up relations with a lot of people.”

A big Trump victory in South Carolina would stamp him clearly as the Republican front-runner, while a Sanders win in Nevada would raise more questions about Clinton’s appeal and add to the pressure on her to score a big victory in South Carolina.

Hillary Clinton: She had to win Nevada to avoid an establishment panic that could have jeopardized her standing in South
Carolina and the March 1 and March 15 states. And she got it. Clinton's team proves its organizing mettle -- more on that below -- despite the fact that all of the reporting coming out of Nevada in the final days before Saturday's caucus suggested the race was tied but gave Sanders the momentum edge. In her victory speech, Clinton name-checked both Flint (Michigan) and Ferguson (Missouri), a not-so-subtle signal to black voters that she is attuned to their concerns and is their candidate.  She also made sure to note that she is not a single issue candidate and this is not a single issue campaign -- a clear shot at Sanders going forward.

Cruz was scheduled to hold three rallies across the state Tuesday before attending a caucus site with his wife, Heidi, in Sparks, a suburb of Reno. Rubio held a morning rally in the Las Vegas area before jetting on to afternoon and evening events in Minnesota and Michigan.

Still, Nevada is Trump’s to lose.
