Texas Democratic Primary Vote Down By 50.1%
The Democratic primary/caucus votes have been down in nearly every state in 2016 over the same figures for the 2008 election. But the figures for Texas are rather shocking, even considering that. Slightly less than half (49.9%) of Democrats voted on March 1st compared to the number that voted in 2008. On March 1st, 1,433,827 people voted in the Democratic primary in Texas. In 2008, that numbers was 2,874,986.
It seems that Sanders' "political revolution" (which was supposed to bring so many new voters into the party) didn't make it to Texas.
These numbers are from the office of the Texas Secretary of State.
