Once upon a time, Nevada was Hillary Clinton's state to lose.

But after Bernie Sanders' landslide victory in New Hampshire, the expectation has completely changed. The Nevada race Saturday is now predicted to be much closer between Clinton and Sanders. The state is heavily Latino, a demographic base that many had thought Clinton has a lock on.
