(AP and NBC) -
   New York native Donald Trump is lecturing his supporters in Nevada that their state is correctly pronounced "Neh-VAH-da."
   The Republican presidential candidate performed an exaggerated form of his preferred pronunciation from the stage of a rally in Reno. He declared that "nobody says it the other way." But the confused silence form the crowd mixed with a few shouts of disagreement indicated that quite a few Nevadans pronounce their home state "Neh-VAD-uh."
   American Bridge, a group that supports Hillary Clinton, immediately put up a web video declaring that Trump was "looking like an idiot" for getting the name wrong.
