New Hampshire Turnout Favors Dems

Sure, this matters less than the actual results, but I wanted to point out that 55% of New Hampshire-ites pulled Democratic ballots.

Dem - 279,276
GOP - 228, 531
Total - 507,807, 96% reporting in both parties

In 2000, the Republican race out-drew the Democratic race 60%-40%. This is improvement, and speaks to out chances of continuing New Hampshire's leftward trend and taking its 4 electoral votes as well as John Sununu's Senate seat (besides reelecting our two congressmen and our state government trifecta, the first since 1874).
