Sam Stein’s analysis of Hillary Clinton’s win in the Nevada caucus in today’s Huffington Post relies on indications from entrance polls showing her support from several groups thought to have been solidly behind Obama.

The breakdown according to most important issues:

Iraq War: Clinton 44%; Obama 39%

Electability: Clinton 46%; Obama 35%

Clinton also received support from a majority of those who described themselves ideologically as moderate to conservative.

Latino voters supported Clinton over Obama by 64% to 24%.

Obama received more votes than Clinton among younger voters, African-Americans, independents, and those voters who said the top quality in a candidate was his ability to bring change.
