    To me it looks like Dem's care to vote more, hence a larger turnout rather than just going for whoever wins the ticket.

    A closer contest will always attract more people so those numbers don't say that much. If I was voting republican I wouldn't vote next tuesday as McCain has it pretty much wrapped up at this point.

    Of course, all bets are off in the general election with people voting "against" candidates, "for" spoilers, trading votes on the internet, and getting to their polling place and flat out changing their minds or making snap judgements.

    One thing that is different this time is if it's Obama vs. McCain I won't be nearly as pissed if the outcome doesn't go my way.
