An indicator of things to come?

Well, it seems outside of this dryer there wasn't much enthusiasm for yesterday's primary election in Orange County.

Only 129,343 folks actually cast ballots . . . that's about 21% of registered voters.

Still, I'm told that is good for a primary in an off-year. Really?! 21% is good?!

Of those who did get off their rumps to vote, it would appear the enthusiasm is decidedly on the Republican side.

Orange County as a whole is 44% Democrat, 31% Republican, and 25% other.

Yesterday, the percentages were 53% Republican, 38% Democrat, and 9% other.

If this level of enthusiam can be sustained til the general election, it will definitely be a November to Remember.
