Republicans didn't turn out to vote in South Carolina. The Fix:
South Carolina Republicans: More than 573,000 South Carolinians turned out in 2000 to vote in the Republican primary between George W. Bush and McCain. With nearly 90 percent of precincts reporting, less than 400,000 votes had been cast. Contrast that with a surge in Democratic turnout in each of the first three primary/caucus states -- Iowa, New Hampshire and Nevada -- and Republicans have reason to worry about November 2008.
The vote total from the South Carolina Secretary of State's Office is 418073. I am not sure how much percent reporting which agrees with some press reports of 95% of precincts reporting. It will be interesting to the vote turnout for the South Carolina Democratic primary.
