A Flood Of Democrats

We Swamp The Republicans

On March 4 the Republican Party of Texas could read the handwriting on the wall. A record number, 2,868,454, voted in the Democratic Primary. This was twice the number of Republicans that turned out, which is scaring their campaign consultants to death. In Dallas County we did even better, voting 297,336, which was also a record and more than three times as many as the Republicans here.

We can also be overjoyed by specific comparisons of the Presidential campaigns. Statewide and in Dallas County, both Clinton and Obama each got more votes alone than Republicans McCain, Huckabee, and Paul combined. There are similar results comparing the differing party primary votes for the other statewide and local contests. This bodes very well for us for the November general election. You can read our statewide results on line here, and those for Dallas County are here.
