Missouri election shows big enthusiasm gap between GOP and Dems 

Jim Geraghty spots some mighty interesting turnout stats from last night’s Missouri primary:

Total votes for Democrat Robin Carnahan in St. Louis County, Missouri, in yesterday’s U.S. Senate primary: 58,775.

Total votes for Republican Roy Blunt in in St. Louis County, Missouri, in yesterday’s U.S. Senate primary: 59,274.

This is one of the biggest Democratic counties in the state and Republicans are showing up in bigger numbers than Democrats. It does not bode well for the party in power come November.

UPDATE — I see Geraghty has appended his post to note St. Louis county isn’t as Democratic as the city:

A reader notes that this county includes a large portion of the city’s suburbs, but does not include the city itself, which is incorporated separately from any county. Within the city of St. Louis, Robin Carnahan won 23,549 votes; Blunt won 3,556.
