Fantastic turnout figures coming out this morning, compared to 2014. I looked at four of the states, and here we go:
California Governor: (Cal numbers are approximate and might go down proportionally): GOP increase of 31% from 2014, Democratic increase 112%
New Jersey Senate: GOP increase 54%, Dems 105%
Alabama Governor: GOP increase 34%, Dems 57%
Mississippi Senate: GOP decrease of 49%, Dems up 1% (Republicans had a competitive race in ‘14, but still. Half as many voters? Wow)
Democratic primary turnout is a very good indication of how many folks are voting in November. As I have said previously, ignore the surveys and DO NOT listen to the talking heads on cable. They want horse races, so they don’t care about numbers that show otherwise.
