State Opinion Poll Series #10: Is your opinion of Nevada mostly positive or negative? In the comments section, list the things that first some to mind when you think about the Silver State.
Mostly barren desert, eh
You've got Vegas and some wasteland desert. Anything else?
Gambling, desert, lights, shows, homelessness, crime
Viva Las Vegas!
I think of casinos, shows and restaurants, Las Vegas and Reno / Lake Tahoe, and a small town called Elko where we spent a night on the road. The water in our Elko motel was full of minerals that to me made it the tastiest water I remember drinking.
Ben Cartwright and the Ponderosa.
They kept sending Harry Reid to Washington. Negative.
I have never visited the state but now that it's a neighbor I need to check it out sometime!
I guess positive, but I wouldn't want to live there.
Las Vegas: P
Area 51: P
Hoover Dam: P
Deserts and mountains: P

Keepin' it consistent. =)
Hmm thought Area 51 was in New Mexico. Same place as Roswell
Nope. Area 51 is in Nevada.
Thank you presrvd. I felt like I was forgetting something... :)
Not every one in Las Vegas. There are two cities, one the Strip , and the other a bedroom community. Positive.
Vegas, negative. That range with the gatling gun, positive. Lots of military testing (area 51) positive. I guess positive.
Hookers and blackjack.
I'm really so-so about Nevada. I like the buffets and some hotels in Vegas (the Tahiti) have beautiful pools. I have to admit that I hate the sound of slot machines, though. That near constant ringing bugs me.
Reno Nevada: home of the quickie divorce. Breakdown of the American family.
I think of Vegas, the Dam, the new bridge! and that wonderful park outside of the city. I fell in love with the Joshua trees.
Overall positive, I suppose. When I think of Nevada, I think of Vegas, Reno, organized crime, sand, hot weather, and a lot of open spaces.
Fairly positive. I liked it when I visited it. Reno is awesome. 👍
Mostly positive. I think of Las Vegas, gambling, buffets, sin, hookers, organized crime, casinos, decadence, ranchers, guns, libertarians, desert, implosions, and the Rat Pack. I also think of it as a swing state.
