A head to head comparison of the 2022 Nevada Primary gives us an idea of the break down of the voters.
Steve Sisolak received 39.61% (155.7k votes) beating both Joe Lombardo who had 21.92% (86.15k votes) and Joey Gilbert who had 15.45% (60717 votes) in the overall count of votes in Nevada if the election were among these 3 candidates.
Joey Gilbert wins 9 counties out of the counties in the state of Nevada to support his claims of his movement in the country. Steve Sisolak won 4 counties and Joe Biden won just 2 counties in the state of Nevada.
These 10 counties play an important role in these primary elections. If a candidate, can get a sizable majority, it becomes very difficult to win majorities in the smaller counties with out voter out reach and increased voter participation in them.
