2014 was only so low for the dems because Abortion Barbie was running unopposed in the Primary. “the Double” turn out in 2018 for dems means nothing and it definitely isn’t because of Trump.

The Dems didn’t have anything to vote for in 2014. In 2018 they had a mainstream “conservative” dem vs. a open borders Lesbian. That brings out the dems.

If Abortion Barbie was running against an NRA loving, Joe Manchin style, old school Texas democrat in 2014, 1M would have turned out in the Dem Primary. Abortion Barbie still would have won and then lost the General.

That list is very interesting.

If you notice that the REP vote has steadily climbed from 555,338 to 1,540,296, whereas the DEM vote veers around wildly. That means that one party is stable and reliable and the other is not.

I have a good friend who used to be an active Texas democrat. He served on state-wide committees including the party conventions. He was on the TX state platform committee and he witnessed something that made him think twice about his involvement.

He was made to understand that the democratic party does not like straight white men and they did everything they could to push him out. Another democrat friend experienced pretty much the same thing. Both these guys are now voting Republican and are also yuge Trump fans.
