Interesting factoids

From Texas Monthly's Burkablog

Texas Observer poll to show D primary turnout was 2/3 new voters

* 66% of the Democratic primary voters either had NO history of voting in previous Democratic primaries (going back to 2002) or had previously voted in at least one Republican primary.

* The breakdown of these two groups was:
–No Democratic primary history 55%
–Republican primary history 10.8%

* 9.4% of the Democratic primary voters indicated their intention to vote for John McCain for president.

* The dropoff after the presidential race was extreme. Downballot races received very little attention from these voters.
