Turnout better for Democrats

Mal Leary, Maine Public Broadcasting - What's interesting to me is far fewer Republican voters came out this time than in 2010, when Gov. LePage was nominated. I mean significantly. In 2010, the Republican turnout was over 131,000 voters. Right now we're looking at a Republican turnout of around 85,000 voters. So that's a significant difference. On the Democratic side, they have something to be happy about in that it looks like their turnout this year will closely match the 122,000 that turned out in 2010. So they're at least meeting the same levels of voter interest that they had eight years ago.
