Is there an enthusiasm gap?
So far, according to the Washington Times, Democrat turnout is down in all three presidential contests so far compared to 2008, the last time there was a real contest. In Nevada on Saturday only about 80,000 voters participated in the caucuses. That is 33 percent below 2008 turnout.
Republicans, on the other hand, are setting records in the other direction. The GOP primary in South Carolina more than 737,000 people vote — more than 20 percent higher than 2012, when about 603,000 voted.
Republicans caucus in Nevada Tuesday night.
