President Trump’s primary vote totals are shockingly high

Pundits are starting to predict a Joe Biden landslide in November. But they may be getting ahead of themselves.

According to a recent article by the New York Post, President Trump has been running up big numbers in the primaries, despite the fact that he’s running virtually unopposed.

The Post notes:

…in 23 of the 27 states that held primaries both this year and in 2012, when President Obama ran for re-election, Trump has racked up higher raw vote totals than Obama did — often doubling or tripling his predecessor’s numbers. His primary vote totals also beat President George W. Bush’s in 2004.

The high Trump turnout showed up not only in reliably Republican states like Montana and Arkansas, but even in deep-blue strongholds and in purple states that Joe Biden hopes to flip come November.

Could the polls be as wrong as they were in 2016?
