Red-hot Romney a safe bet in Nevada caucus

Voters hope Mitt Romney's business background solve state's unemployment and sagging economy.

    Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, with a huge lead in polls, appears poised for an easy win in Nevada's Republican caucus on Saturday.

    A victory would be Romney's third in the first five contests in the state-by-state battle to find a Republican challenger to President Barack Obama.

    Romney has stressed his business background as a cure for the failing economy in Nevada, which has the highest state unemployment rate, 12.6 per cent in December, and the highest home foreclosure rate.
