Before Democrat voters get too giddy about their 33% increase in voter turnout on Super Tuesday, they may want to check out those big smiles on the faces of Republicans.
President Trump, who faces only token opposition for re-nomination, drew some 1.9 million votes in Texas, more than Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren combined. He also enjoyed high turnout for his certain nomination in Iowa and New Hampshire.
The Trump campaign said Trump had higher turnout during the current primary season than Obama did when he sought re-election in 2012.
“While Democrats duke it out in a chaotic process that could end in a floor fight in Milwaukee, and while many in the media ignore the energy behind the Trump movement, Republican voters remain coalesced behind the president,” Trump campaign spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany wrote in The Hill newspaper.
