If voter turnout indicates one thing it’s that Hillary ain’t getting it done. Democrat voter turnout is down nearly 20 percent this year when compared to 2008 when Hillary ran against Obama. Meanwhile, Trump has grabbed millions of votes more than Romney did at this time in 2012.
According to Breitbart, about 4.5 million fewer people have voted in the Democratic presidential contest this year versus 2008.
2008: Total of 23,715,866 people voted in primaries and caucuses nationwide in the states that have already voted this cycle. But just 19,155,825 people have voted thus far in primaries and caucuses this cycle, a decrease of 4,560,041 voters or 19.23 percent.
The following states saw a drop in Democratic voter turnout when compared to 2008: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Utah, Wisconsin, Vermont, American Samoa, Hawaii, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, Washington state, and Wyoming.
The following states saw an uptick in Dem voter turnout: Arizona, Michigan, Alaska, Colorado, Idaho, Kansas and Maine. With the exception of Arizona, Sanders won—and Clinton lost—each of those contests.
According to Breitbart, Trump has received 8,776,586 votes so far this year in states that have already held primaries or caucuses or conventions. In those same states in 2012, Romney received 6,654,029 votes—a whopping 2,122,557 votes less than Donald Trump. That means Trump has gotten a 31.79 percent increase over Romney’s totals.
It’s beginning to look more and more like a Trump White House.
