Why is this significant? Because 51% of those were Dems, 30% were Repubs and 19% were Indies.

So with 2.6M votes already in the bank, Dems have at least 1.3M of those to Repubs 860K.

Still, the turnout on election day promises to be massive.

MSNBC reports…

This favors Obama, but I’m still not convinced Obama will pull it out. Although he did do incredibly well in the primaries so maybe I’m being too pessimistic.

    I question how we should interpret “registered Democrat.” I know in 2000, Dems thought they had generated a big turnout in Florida only to discover that a significant percentage of registered Dems were really Republicans who hadn’t changed their registration in 20 years.

    Here in Texas, we don’t register for a party, but if we vote in a primary they can “track” us in the general. We’ve had high Dem turnout but I wonder how many of those were crossover voters who wanted to participate in the first important primary here in a generation but have gone home to the Republicans for the general. (of course, I did the opposite, voting in the Rep primary but switching to Obama in the general).

    I’m sure the high Dem turnout is good news for Obama, but I wonder HOW good.
