NEVADA (AP) — Donald Trump has won the Republican presidential caucuses in Nevada, giving the billionaire businessman three straight wins in the race for the GOP nomination.

Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz are vying for second place, far ahead of John Kasich and Ben Carson.

Preliminary entrance polls taken of Republican caucus-goers show that nearly 6 in 10 are angry at the way the government is working, and about half of them supported the billionaire businessman.

Trump was also supported by about 6 in 10 of those who said they care most about immigration, and nearly half of those who said they care most about the economy.

The race for the Republican nomination now moves on to next week’s Super Tuesday, when a dozen states will hold presidential primaries.

    If the issues are immigration and the economy, nobody can beat Trump because nobody else is willing to do what the people want done. It is that simple. The people will not let party loyalty steal their voices. The vote is all we have, and we will vote for whoever is willing to do what we tell them to do. We don’t care about their color, or their gender, or how silly looking their hair is. We care about whether they are willing to work for US rather than for some special interest or some foreign country.
