Primary Turnout Shock: GOP Up 62%, Dems Down 21%

According to this year’s primary turnout numbers, Donald Trump has a legitimate chance at being the next President of the United States. And he could win it by a long shot.

According to Gateway Pundit:

Republican turnout was up 62% this year. Democratic turnout was down 21% this year. Despite her tight race with Socialist Bernie Sanders Hillary Clinton received 1,019,237 fewer votes this year than in 2008.

DEMOCRAT PARTY TURNOUT–
** In 2008 there were 38,111,341 Democrat votes in the primary. In 2016 there were 29,939,251 votes. A net decrease of 8,172,090 (-21%).

REPUBLICAN PARTY TURNOUT–
** In 2012 there were 19,214,513 Republican votes in the primary. In 2016 there were 31,108,968 votes. A net increase of 11,894,455 (+62%).

Republicans had 1.1 million more primary voters this year than the Democratic party.

Even while the Democratic primary was a heated contest between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, they still failed to match the electoral energy surrounding Donald Trump.

If the Trump campaign can keep this energy up, they could win the White House in November.
