KY - Primary Election Results - Rand Paul Needs More Votes
With all the hype about Rand Paul's landslide win, you'd think he will be a shoo-in in November. But, the way I read the primary results here, KY - Election Results, it looks to me that he needs more than 315,000 votes to win in November. It was, after all, only a primary election.
Paul received 206,000 votes out of 352,000 Republicans who voted in the primary; 59% of the Republican vote. But, 521,000 Democrats voted in its primary; about 1.5 Democrats for each Republican. Let's hope that margin holds true in November.
