Turnout Question:
The increase in turnout from 2000 to 2004 was officially a higher percentage
than the percentage from 2004 to 2008.

IIRC, the 00-04 %> was @ 16%. And then from 04-08 was just 4%?

2. In order to answer the question, you have to have data. Where do you get the data?
From the voting machines?

3. Turnout would be from poll books....
...but some of those were electronic poll books.

And of course there's Vote by Mail. :mad:

4. Many told me I was wrong, but I never believed '08 to be a tight race.
And I wonder if many stayed home as a result. Dem and Repubs, alike.

Meanwhile, I'm merely guessing that voter suppression was about the same as ever.
