卡尔·罗夫: 看看宾夕法尼亚. 四年前, 737,000 人们在共和党初选中投票. 今年, 1,338,000. 七百, 七万六千人四年前在民主党初选中投票, outnumbered the Republicans, this year they had a 1,252,000 — 79% increase in the Republican vote. Sixty-one percent of the Democrat and the Republicans outnumber them. Worse in North Carolina. 北卡罗来纳, four years ago, 294,000 共和党人. 今年, 759. That’s a 158% 增加. Democrats went from 432 至 613. 所以再次, the Republicans outnumber the Democrats in North Carolina as well as in Pennsylvania, an exact reversal of four years ago.
I’m happy with the idea that Republican turnout is larger than Democratic turnout. Not necessarily happy with all the outcomes because quality of candidates and quality of message matters in the general election.
