Republicans Surge, Democrats Lag in Early Voting

RALEIGH – With numbers from the first days of early voting coming in we can get the first real look at enthusiasm turned into votes. Right out of the gate the Republicans are strong, beating first days early voting numbers from 2016.

That looks more like a blue cliff than a blue wave. You’d have thought, by the media amplification of Democratic campaigns messaging, that the first days would be cresting turn out from the Left. At least in the early going, that doesn’t seem to be the case at all.
