Democrats are leading Republicans by thousands of votes in early voting, including Clark County, which encompasses Las Vegas, Jon Ralston wrote Saturday on his ABC 13 blog.
 
"Trump's path was nearly impossible, as I have been telling you, before what happened in Clark County on Friday," Ralston said.
 
"But now [Trump] needs a Miracle in Vegas on Election Day — and a Buffalo Bills Super Bowl championship is more likely — to turn this around."
 
Ralston added that such a massive Democratic turnout will also cause a "ripple effect" that will have damaging implications for downballot GOP candidates.
