Texas Sets A New Record In Registered Voters
Some political pundits are telling us that the voters are turned off by this election, and the presidential candidates each party has chosen. The chart above shows that is simply not true.
The state of Texas has set a new record in the number of registered voters. The current tally is 15,100,824. That's a jump in registration of 1,454,598 (about 11%). And that's not a normal increase in registered voters. The number in 2012 was only 71,164 over 2008 (a rise of only 0.005%).
Whatever voters may think of the candidates, they are paying extraordinary attention to this election, and I believe there will be a huge turnout this year -- probably a record turnout.
