The lowest possible turnout

Byline: | Category: 2008 Presidential Election | Posted at: Monday, 28 January 2008

Various pundits are writing about a possible McCain-Huckabee ticket. I disagree with many of my conservative brethren about John McCain. I’d vote for him over either of the two remaining Democratic candidates. But I do understand that McCain has a lot of baggage with many conservatives. Therefore, it’s important that he choose a strong conservative to allay those concerns. Someone like a Fred Thompson, JC Watts, John Kasich, or Sarah Palin. But NOT Mike Huckabee. He has even less conservative support than does McCain.

So a thought occurred to me: If Hillary wins her nomination through trickery and a McCain-Huckabee ticket opposes her, do you think that we might see the lowest voter turnout ever?

    [...] Bob Krumm wonders if the high turnout numbers we are seeing in Democratic primaries may be the high-watermark for this election cycle: If Hillary wins her nomination through trickery and a McCain-Huckabee ticket opposes her, do you think that we might see the lowest voter turnout ever?

    Uh, I’m not sure how to say this, so I’ll be gentle: The conservative thing that’s been going on since 1980? It’s over, even if HRC wins the nomination.

    Every primary and caucus to this point save Wyoming has shown a higher turnout for Democrats than Republicans.

    If Obama takes the nomination, the Democrats may well take 10 Senate seats and 50 House seats. Bob, the House Republicans are retiring at an astounding pace.

    It’s just over.

    Over? Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?
