One of the things that’s not being talked about in the U.S. primaries is that the number of Republicans voting in Republican primaries is falling at a rate that should alarm that party — if they’re not already obsessed with finding out who God loves more.
Take Nevada, for example. In its primary, about 30,000 voted — out of 400,000 registered Republican party members. And, as Bob Cecsa’s article states, the number of Republicans who voted in the primaries has declined in three primaries, compared to the primary voting totals four years ago.
This gives one clue that many Republicans will be staying home on election day, no matter who the nominee is. If Romney wins, the wingnut/Tea Party wing will stay home: if by some bizarre manifestation Gingrich comes in, the ‘moderates’ will find something else to do on election day.
