    I thought would share this. I live in Dayton, OH in a pretty solid GOP district. I have lived and voted here for a number of years. I have never seen such the number of people out to vote! Typically I have to wait about 10 min. This year I am in for a solid 45 to 50 min wait. People are parked all over the place, in the grass, everywhere! I have to think this is a good thing for Trump. Anyone else have a similar experience?

  • The word is ENTHUSIASM: Trump supporters have it, Clinton supporters don’t have it

    The Washington Post ABC News poll bombshell that hit Hillary Clinton, was far more important than the news that she had finally fallen behind Donald Trump in its daily survey of voting preferences of likely voters. Embedded within the Wapo’s report of its findings was the very serious news that Trump supporters are 8 points more enthusiastic to vote than Clinton supporters are. Nobody wins an election for president when the other team has an enthusiasm lead like that – PERIOD. This is unarguably the death knell for Clinton’s staggering campaign to be the first president to be under criminal...

    Some background info. According to exit polls: 2012 - AA were 13% of the Florida electorate. Obama took 95% of AA vote. 2008 - AA were 13% of the Florida electorate. Obama took 96% of AA vote. 2004 - AA were 12% of the Florida electorate. Kerry took 86% of AA vote. 2000 - AA were 10% of the Florida electorate. Gore took 90% of AA vote. If the AA vote goes back down to 12% from 13% of the total electorate in 2016, that would reduce Clinton's total by approximately 84,000 votes. At 11%, Clinton's total would go down...

She does have the presidential debates scheduled but there are no more Clinton campaign rallies scheduled anytime in the future. It is really no wonder. Hillary’s ‘Racist Pepe’ speech in Reno was horrible for all involved. For starters, it almost didn’t start – it was actually 2 hours late in starting. It is unknown if Hillary was...

    Myself, Data from Wikipedia | 8 June 2016 | Self
    Out of curiosity, I compared GOP and Dem turnout in the primaries and the general election in the last dual contested primary year, 2008 with this year primary results. While this is not a true statistical model, and relies on incomplete Wikipedia data, it provides a sense of enthusiasm gap between the two parties. 2008 GOP Primary Vote 20,039,034 (36.12% of turnout) Dem Primary Vote 35,442,193 (63.88% of turnout) In the General election, Obama won 53.65 over McCain's 46.31%. 2016 GOP Primary Vote 28,836,337 (50.67% of turnout, an increase of 8.7M voters) Dem Primary Vote 28,072,793 (49.33% of turnout, a...
  • Wisconsin turnout highest in presidential primary since 1972

    Milwaukee Journal Sentinel ^ | 4-6-16 | Craig Gilbert
    It was predicted to be huge and historic. But it was bigger than that. Wisconsin's turnout rate in Tuesday's presidential primary exceeded the state’s own bullish forecast, topped any Wisconsin primary since 1972, and easily bested that of any state that has voted this year except for New Hampshire. Nearly 2.1 million Wisconsinites voted, based on unofficial returns. Essentially, half the people that could vote did vote: roughly 47% of the state’s voting-age population and an estimated 49% of all eligible voting-age citizens. "That’s unusual," said turnout expert Michael McDonald, for a contest "this late in the presidential election calendar."

    Looking at the numbers from last Tuesday's GOP and Democrat Primaries I noticed something I had not seen talked about much. Voter turnout favored the Republicans in all but one contest: Illinois. Is just a coincidence that Illinois was the same state that saw the organized, professional, agitators come out in mass? As Donald Trumps populist message continues to build momentum, I believe the Democrats will see the Chicago model as the only chance they have to compete.

    The outcome of who the victor will be in today's "Demcrat" POTUS Primary election in South Carolina today is important....but, no where as important as Democrat voter tunout. A quick but, early review of Democrat voter turnout is the very few, first, Caucus & Primary elections of this season show very tepid and lack of interest in voter participation, among rank & file Democrat voters. I suspect the voter turnout today will be far below expectations, even among African-Americans....who have diminishd in their admiration and trust of the Clintons. Oh....Ms. Clinton will do fine today....only she will accomplish her victory...
  • The Big 2016 Story Out of the Nevada GOP Caucus? Turnout.

    While Donald Trump won a sweeping victory in Nevada on Tuesday night - his third victory in a row - the biggest story out of the Silver State may actually be the record-breaking turnout Republicans saw at the evening's caucus gatherings. The Nevada Republican Party reported Wednesday morning that more than 75,000 voters participated in the contest. While that might not seem like a stunning number in a state with a population of somewhere around three million, that turnout absolutely demolished the participation record from 2012, when only about 33,000 Republican voters showed up to caucus. In fact, Donald Trump...

    Washington Times ^ | February 10, 2016 | Stephen Dinan
    Republicans set a new turnout record Tuesday in New Hampshire's primary, attracting more than a quarter of a million voters to the polls and offering evidence that most of the energy in the 2016 presidential race continues to be on the GOP side. Democrats saw a strong turnout, but their two-person race couldn't recapture the magic of the 2008 battle between Hillary Clinton and then-candidate Barack Obama - a race that presaged Mr. Obama's eventual cruise to victory in November. Instead, this year it is Republicans who set a record. More than 263,000 votes had been recorded as of Wednesday...
  • Despite its Best Efforts, the GOP was the Biggest Winner in Iowa Last Night [Turnout Unprecedented]

    National Review ^ | 02/02/2016 | Jeremy Carl
    Despite its best attempts to fail, the biggest winner of the Iowa Caucus last night was the GOP itself, which generated an unprecedented level of energy and engagement among voters in a critical swing state. That energy was generated thanks to a group of leading candidates who actually appealed to the GOP's grassroots voter base. Turnout was more than 186,000, more than 50 percent higher than any Iowa GOP Caucus in history, and 46 percent of those were first time caucus attendees. This despite the threat of an imminent snow storm. And this turnout boom can't be all chalked up...

    The final Des Moines Register poll was just released, showing Donald Trump leading the Republican field in Iowa with 28 percent, Ted Cruz with 23 percent and Marco Rubio with 15 percent. Hillary Clinton was ahead of Bernie Sanders, 45 percent to 42 percent, on the Democratic side. The political world - us included - was eagerly awaiting this survey, as Ann Selzer, who has conducted the Register's polls since the 1988 caucuses, has a very good track record. But just how predictive of the final results have Selzer's polls been? History suggests they're a good indicator of what will...

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is poised to absorb Donald Trump's supporters when the billionaire exits the race for the GOP presidential nomination, according to one of the campaign's most common narratives. But how many Trump supporters are open to supporting another candidate?The quickest analysis of the Republican race divides candidates into distinct establishment and anti-establishment lanes, including lumping Trump, Cruz and Ben Carson supporters together as a monolithic force that is interchangeable between the candidates.Unsurprisingly, the situation is more complicated.Both Trump and Cruz have found success in the Republican race by railing against the GOP establishment and there is a...

    A series of tweets from candidate Donald Trump toward the Republican Party of Virginia have many wondering what’s going on. It would appear Mr. Trump, and/or the Trump Campaign, has become aware of the RPV intentions to force Virginia voters to swear an loyalty oath (statement of intent) prior to voting in the upcoming primary. We Provided The Leaked Documents In November Virginia is an interesting state when it comes to the Republican Party and conservative voters. Partly due to the vicinity to Washington DC, and party due to many of the professionally republican living in the state, the hierarchy...

    Real Clear Politics ^ | June 29, 2015 | Alexis Simendinger
    Democratic voters are skeptics this summer. They doubt presidential contenders can deliver. Those doubts depress enthusiasm about next year’s White House contest and could impact turnout for the eventual Democratic nominee. “It’s because the old political system is uniquely corrupted” in their eyes, Greenberg said. “Voters define corruption as money in politics and Washington power brokers who are self-serving and disconnected from everyday Americans and their concerns. This is why Clinton’s wealth, the Clinton Foundation’s fundraising, her decades lived as a VIP, and her missing emails discourage some voters from accepting the leading Democratic candidate as trustworthy, even if they...

    At an event in Cleveland on Wednesday, President Obama endorsed a system of mandatory voting, a policy that would penalize eligible voters who don't make it to the polls on Election Day. The idea is not universally embraced, though it has significantly boosted turnout in Australia, where it's in place. It's very easy to see why Obama likes the idea. He spoke longingly of increased turnout during the 50th anniversary ceremony in Selma, Ala., earlier this month. There's value in getting more people involved in the democratic process that doesn't tie directly to the success of his party, but it's...
