GOP Turnout Tracking High

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

ElephantsEveryone is very cautious this time around, Save Jerseyans, because the down ballot effects of the Christie wave won’t be fully known until it’s crashed on our shores.

That said, everyone I talk to is feeling more optimistic than they were 24 hours ago. I know you want me to say SOMETHING since we’re all dying for news. Here’s the best I can give you:

Takes the anecdotal example of one district at the Jersey Shore where approximately 1/3 of all votes cast in 2009 were on the machines by 8:00 a.m. this morning. The district went 74% for Christie last time.

Something else that’s fun and worth keeping an eye on: the Atlantic City mayor’s race. I’m hearing Atlantic County Republicans are intrigued by what they’re seeing there. Stay tuned...

The general trend is clear: Republican districts are turning out well-above of pace; Democrats areas like Newark are coming in a bit slower relative to the burbs. But please TAKE IT ALL WITH A GRAIN OF SALT. We’ll see if that changes down the final stretch with only a few hours to go, and critically, early reports from battleground legislative districts are also mixed.

Stay tuned…

  1. What is key is what happens in the legislature and whether republicans can break the democrats stranglehold on it. If not – then Christie will be further hampered and not be able to make TRUE changes in NJ.
