A Very Super Tuesday: Democrats Smash Turnout Records
Across the country, Democratic voters turned out in record numbers to make Donald Trump a one-term president.
As Super Tuesday results poured in last night, Donald Trump had plenty to be nervous about. In every corner of the country, voters flocked to cast their ballots for Democrats, smashing turnout records along the way. See for yourself:
More than 1.3 million Virginia Democrats voted in this year’s primary, blowing past 2016 (785,190) and 2008 (986,203). That represents an increase of nearly 70% over 2016.
With 82% of precincts reporting, more than 756,000 Colorado Democrats voted in this year’s primary, compared to fewer than 125,000 in 2016.
Duluth News Tribune: Approximately 82,000 Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party absentee ballots were requested, compared to roughly 12,000 Republican ballots.
In North Carolina:
“Ballot turnouts were running about 40 percent higher than 2016 in Orange County as of Monday, and election officials estimate overall turnout could reach about the mid-60s. Vote-by-mail ballots were on track to beat the 2012 turn-in by 70 percent, Orange County Registrar Neal Kelley said.”
More than 175,000 Utah Democrats voted in this year’s primary, more than double the 81,606 who caucused in 2016, and more than the 131,403 who voted in the 2008 primary.
More than 157,000 Vermont Democrats voted this year, topping 2008 turnout and outpacing 2016 by nearly 23,000 votes.
