Wisconsin Republican primary voter turnout sets record – 70 percent higher turnout than 2008
So even with Mittens leading in delegates and many assume that he’s probably going to get to 1,144 delegates to be the GOP nominee, the GOP voting base is supposed to be depressed and unenthusiastic right? The media will try and spin it that way, but the fact remains that the Wisconsin Republican Primary last night had it’s highest voter turnout ever. The vote total was up 70% from 2008. In 2008, Wisconsin’s GOP primary was on Super Tuesday of that year. There was a total of 402,699 votes in the 2008 GOP primary, with John McCain beating Mike Huckabee 55% to 37%. This year, Romney beat Rick Santorum 43% to 38%. The total amount of votes in yesterday’s Wisconsin GOP primary was 704,288 votes! A 70 percent increase over 2008.
Wisconsin is actually considered a battleground state this year, in the several past years the Republicans always conceded the state to Democrats. Marxist Democrats are going to get humiliated in June when their Scott Walker recall attempt fails and they waste millions of dollars in propaganda. Why do I think that you wouldn’t hear a peep about this voter turnout in the pink slime media?
