6. Alot of democrats ran unopposed or against candidates with little impact
There was no liberal version of the tea party (thank goodness - I think that would be impossible since tea partiers are the dumbest of dumb out there) and therefore many of these democratic primaries had little excitement in regards to the vote.

Like here in Delaware - there will be a major GOP turnout because the tea party candidates are trying to pull out an upset over 2 mainstream republican candidates (Castle for Senate and Rollins for House, which in DE is also statewide). Whereas on the Democratic side we have Coons and Carney that will win their respective elections. Almost a no-brainer.

I'll do my best to remember to vote next Tuesday (our primaries are late) but won't sweat it if I run late from work and forget to do it since I know my candidates are pretty much set.

But somehow the news will extrapolate that the GOP will have a bigger turn out in the November election. Seriously - it makes no sense whatsoever.
