Democrats surge in Ohio primary, but does that mean anything for November?

For the first time since 2008, more Democrats than Republicans voted in an Ohio presidential primary. While valid mail ballots that arrive by Friday remain to be tabulated, roughly 180,000 (26%) more from the donkey crowd were recorded by the end of Tuesday’s extended “Election Day.”

Attaching any significance to that difference requires enough asterisks to make a small blizzard.

First is the basic fact that the 2020 vote was delayed six weeks and conducted during a pandemic. It doesn’t take into account local races or issues that could have ginned up the Democratic share of a low-turnout election. And President Donald Trump was unopposed, while the D’s had a healthy contest brewing for part of the voting period, which began clear back on Feb. 19.

But figures in at least heavily Democratic Franklin County show that the blue advantage pretty much held up even after Joe Biden clinched the nomination.
