None of the Above - is Nevada losing the option

AIR DATE: June 19, 2012

A federal lawsuit has been filed to have the "none of the above" removed from the Nevada ballots before the upcoming November election.  How has this other option played a role in past elections in Nevada? Which candidates would benefit from having it still on the ballot?

Thanks for having Ralston on. He seems to be one of the few people in this entire state who has a clue what is going on, or even cares. I'm not a huge fan of the Democratic Party, but it stuns me that any working-class person could vote for a Republican. Adelson should be the poster guy for getting money out of politics.

I decided years ago to not give my vote to the lesser of two evils, for it's that attitude that gets evil-doers elected. So, as far as I'm concerned, my marking "none of the above" or my just not voting for anyone for a given office has the same effect, i.e. people who I don't support don't get my vote. In that context, this controversy seems a storm in a teacup.
