One thought on “Early stats on WA Aug2020 primary”
Thank you for this excellent analysis. I was trying to do this on my own but you have saved me a lot of work. 37% is pathetic. We know the Democrats tend to vote every time. Every voting Republican must try to find non-voting Republicans and get them to turn in their stinking ballot. How easy could it be? This is the most monumentally important rest of our lifetimes.
