Primaries, The Song Remains The Same.

Another week and another couple of wins for Obama and McCain.

Another week, and again the Democratic turnout in a purple state swamps the Republicans turnout. Hillary Clinton was crushed in the Wisconsin election. She was 17 percentage points behind Obama, getting only 41% of the vote. Despite this, she still had 225,000 more people vote for her than the Republican winner John McCain.

In 2004 Wisconsin was a deep purple state, with the difference between Bush and Kerry about 1%. In this primary about 1,100,000 people voted Democratic while just over 400,000 voted republican, an almost 3-1 difference.
