Lowest turnout for a Presidential Preference Primary since the current system was established.
Voter turnout for the Republican Presidential Preference Primary was the lowest since the current system was established in 1980, according to Secretary of the State Denise Merrill.
Figures reported to Merrill's office show just 14.4 percent of eligible Republicans turned out for the Primary Tuesday.

Various polls say it’s anyone’s game. Rasmussen says Romney by 5 over Obama among likely voters.
Anyone busy cutting off our country’s nose to spite Romney’s face might want to rethink that strategy, if for no better reason than the SCOTUS appointments.
It's only going to get worse.
There aren't enough Romney supporters to distribute lawn signs!
The Republican party was destroyed when 7 of the 10 officially authorized presidential candidates were provably RINOS (according to the traditional definition if not also the more modern one). That sort of thing will destroy any party ~ and it did.
It's time to reconstitute the coalition and leave these pukes behind, and that's gotta' include Priebus, Walker, Rubio, most of that Texas crowd who pretend to be TEAParty types, and, of course, the Great PLains RINOS and their acolytes in misery.
——————If for no other reason, obama cannot have the opportunity to nominate more liberal justices to the supreme court.—————
Then you have no reason. Massachusetts Mitt nominates activist judges.
“Then we need to get behind Romney. He was number 3 on my preferred list “
Wow! You actually had RINOmney on your list at #3?
Wait. Are you a registered Democrat?
I am not that familiar with Rick Santorum
But I have seen several (completely unrebutted) comments posted here on FR threads that dispute Santorum*s constant “I-I” and “Me-Me” claims such as that he personally wrote THE CONTRACT WITH AMERICA
Other off-topic primary issues by all primary candidates:
“TO THE MOON ALICE!”
“I AM THE ONLY REAL CONSERVATIVE!”
“I RAISED 23 FOSTER CHILDREN!”
“I WILL FORCE OBAMA TO DEBATE ME IN A SERIES OF 400 SEVEN-HOUR LONG LINCLHN-DOUGLAS DEBATES!”
“I WILL BAN ALL ABORTIONS!”
“I WILL GUARANTEE I WILL WIN THE STATE OF.....”
“INDUSTRIAL (union) BUSINESSES MUST GET SPECIAL TAX BREAKS!”
“BIG IDEAS - BIG SOLUTIONS!”
Repeated (endlessly) - even now on talk radio or FNC - Prospective voters tune out the noise
There must be some secret list of topics and agendas that some politicians can access will chase away one or more voting groups
It must have been written by Saul Alinski
WWII in Europe would never have been won if the USA, Brits, Canadians, and Aussies had not taken Omaha Beach
Even then we still had to whip the Japanese in the Pacific
Obama is now buying votes with your tax dollars while you bicker, argue, and say “Wait until 2016! Americans will all then magically vote the way we want them too!”
and the lesser of 2 evils is still evil!
with that attitude...If you were asked to jump out of a 20 story building you'd probably beg to jump from the 15th...right?
We could have avoided most of the casualties we took in the war with more patience.
Wait...Scott Walker is a RINO? With that definition, you guys will wind up with a party of possibly 3 people, but you’ll all be pure!
Seriously, he'll have to be sacrificed in any real Republican reorganization ~ because we really do need to get rid of his friends.
WHAT?!? This courageous man is fighting SEIU and other union thugs and has put Wisconsin back on its feet and he needs to be sacrificed? What planet are you on?
And Priebus has come out against Agenda 21; better we should add than subtract...let’s subtract Obama and then work from there.
His failures to lead the party in conducting an orderly and honest primary season cannot be overlooked.
Enough time has been wasted on the mess in Wisconsin. It's time to clear the decks and just get rid of the RINOS and their friends ~ we need a Republican party that is not run by outside interests.
I voted for Santorum in PA
what makes you think Romney would appoint constitutionalist judges?
Did he do it in MA or did he appoint liberal activist judges?
About those Judges your going to vote Romney for....
The primary system is broken. There needs be a conservative primary first who would then beat the establishment candidate.
This turnout is beyond horrible. Mr. Romney cannot bring out any Republican base. His strongest support seems to come from Jimmy Carter. Based on his support in the primaries, turnout, and margin of victory, Mr. Romney will lose, IMHO,at least, 45 states in the General election ,create major losses in the Senate and turn the House back to Democrat ideologues.
Check your local races and find a Conservative to support. After the Romney Wreck, that may be all you have left.
But even that wasn't enough... so they then came up with a plan to remove the competition from the ballot in Virginia and many other states, and even tried to steal Iowa from poor lill Santorum, and continued to push Texas back until it wouldn't matter.
This whole process was a setup from the start.
And they won't be getting my vote as a reward in November, the whole country can burn before I'll vote for that SOB Romney and his Tea Party hating, GOP insider enablers.
The low turnout is mostly due to the race being over.
The majority of people want Romney. That’s why he’s the candidate.
Get over it.
>Then they turn it into the garbage they came from<
Are you saying that NY carpetbaggers are like muslims?
Sorry Josa, but the liberal SOB is going to have to earn my vote! Word from the lamestream media is he needs to now shift to the left of middle, but if he doesn't start wooing the Tea Party and conservative base he is toast in November.
If you want to vote for Obama, I guess you can, but I wouldn’t brag about it.
