More Voters in Dem NH Primary than in Rep NH Primary
Although New Hampshire has a higher number of Republican voters than Democratic voters, more people voted in the 2008 New Hampshire Democratic Primary than in the 2008 Republican New Hampshire Primary. Using the figures on the CNN Election Central website, with 99% of the precincts reporting, the number of voters in the Democratic Primary exceeded the number of voters in the Republican Primary by 50,874. This is the second vote in a row where the number of Democrats voting exceeded the number of Republicans voting. It will be interesting to see how many times this happens this primary season.
