    Donald Trump continues to fill stadiums across the country like this capacity crowd in Bangor, Maine last week.

    Republican turnout was up 62% this year.
    Democratic turnout was down 21% this year.

    Despite her tight race with Socialist Bernie Sanders Hillary Clinton received 1,019,237 fewer votes this yearthan in 2008.

    DEMOCRAT PARTY TURNOUT–
    ** In 2008 there were 38,111,341 Democrat votes in the primary. In 2016 there were 29,939,251 votes. A net decrease of 8,172,090 (-21%).

    REPUBLICAN PARTY TURNOUT–
    ** In 2012 there were 19,214,513 Republican votes in the primary. In 2016 there were 31,108,968 votes. A net increase of 11,894,455 (+62%).

    Republicans had 1.1 million more primary voters this year than the Democratic party.
    These are stunning numbers!

    yes the Democrats were brilliant in crossing over to vote for the candidate that would pretty give Hilary the Whitehouse. one reason why I'm opposed to open primaries.

    Trump would probably have an easy win in November if not for the RATs (Republicans Against Trump). The war on Trump must give Hillary giggles every time she thinks about it.

    And I think the last I checked Trump was leading among independents.
