Reports are coming in from across the Commonwealth and there is looking like there will be very low turnout across the Commonwealth. The Boston Globe is reporting that 33,768 people voted in Boston as of 3 PM. In 2006, the last time there was a seriously contested primary that number ended the day at about 90,000. Turnout is predicted in Boston to be about 60,000 voters.
It is not just the City of Boston where turnout is light. At 2 PM in Attleboro only about 4% of their voters had turned out.
I have been predicting an approximately 70%-30% win for Charlie Baker in the GOP primary tonight. With the lower than expected turnout, I would not be surprised if that number weren’t closer to 65-35.
