It is well known that the Republicans are enjoying historically high turn-out in the primary while the Democrats suffer a massive downturn in voter participation.
However there is one incredible statistic that puts all of this in perspective and it is all about Donald Trump.
Whether Trump can carry this momentum into the general remains to be seen, but for the time being, this has got to have him feeling good!
With his five blowout wins Tuesday night, Donald Trump has passed Mitt Romney’s popular vote total from four years ago and is on a trajectory that could land him more Republican votes than any presidential candidate in modern history – by a lot.
Trump surged to more than 10 million votes, according to totals that include Tuesday’s preliminary results across the Northeast. That’s already about 250,000 more than Romney earned in the entire 2012 primary season and 153,000 more than John McCain earned in 2008.
And there are 10 more states left to vote!
