Here’s our thread to comment on the latest episode of the GOP’s three-ring circus, making its debut tonight in Illinois where Mitt Romney is expected to administer a severe drubbing to the other clowns. (Early reports say this is going to be the lowest primary turnout in Illinois history. These clowns seem to have lost their funny.)
Polls are closing at 8pm ET, about 10 minutes from now…
Mitt Romney is the big winner — well, maybe not so big: Record Low Turnout for Presidential Primary in Chicago.
Chicago election officials predicted the lowest turnout in a presidential primary in city history.
It was 15 percent at 2 p.m. and the previous low was 32 percent in 1996, said Langdon Neal, chairman of the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners.
“It’s going to be the lowest,” Neal said. “The real issue is” how low.
He said he was crossing his fingers that the turnout might reach 20 percent.
