You probably saw that Hillary Clinton routed Bernie Sanders last week in South Carolina. It’s not the news we wanted to hear.
However, in spite of Hillary winning there is some good news to report in regards to the upcoming election season.
Judging from what’s taking place at the polls right now, the GOP is poised to thump the Democrats in November.
Because Democratic voter turnout is really, really low; and Republican turnout is at record highs.
Here’s the report from American Patriot Daily:
In South Carolina’s Democratic primary, where Hillary Clinton scored a big victory Saturday night, just over 367,000 people turned out to vote – a 30 percent decrease from 2008, the last contested Democratic primary, when 532,000 Democrats voted.
Just a week earlier, when Republicans in South Carolina went to the polls, a whopping 738,000 turned out, over 20 percent more than the 603,000 Republicans who voted in 2012 in the GOP’s last contested primary.
The same thing happened in Nevada.
Their primary saw an equal 30 percent drop (as in South Carolina) with turnout falling from 118,000 in 2008 to just 84,000 this year.
Guess what the GOP turnout looked like? Hint – it was much more favorable.
Republican turnout was an astounding 75,000 this year as compared to a horrific 33,000 back in 2012 the year Obama won the election.
The same trends occurred in the New Hampshire caucus, where Republican turnout was up by 14 percent over 2012 (284,000 compared to 248,000). In Iowa, 186,000 Republicans caucused, a more than 50 percent increase over 2012’s 121,000 GOP voters.
Why is this happening?
Because Republicans are fed up with what the Democrats are doing to our country.
And the Democrats are disillusioned and believe that because Barack Obama is president, their next candidate is a shoe-in.
The GOP has more candidates to choose from; the Democrats have only two candidates running, and they’re not very good.
Nobody wants to “hold their nose” and vote for a party’s nominee.
This is why turnout has been low for the Democrats and why it’s unlikely they’re going to win in November.
Do you agree that higher Republican turnout will hold the key to victory in November?
