What record turnout?
Yesterday, news story after story talked about California's "record turnout", saying that 10 million would turn out to vote.
I don't know if that extra 40,000 voters constitutes a record, but it's not an exactly earth-shattering rise in (still pathetic) voter participation.
Ultimately, it came down to turnout. The GOP got its people out, the Democrats did not.
Update: CNN analysis also says it came down to turnout. Minorities and the poor did not turn out.Posted October 08, 2003 09:40 AM | Comments (115)
