Voting results – some breakdowns

Found this in the inbox this past week, from the state GOP folks. Pretty interesting numbers breakdown, but more interesting to see the big bump in Republican voters. From a release on delegate assignments across the state, here’s something about historic voters:

Quick facts about Tennessee’s Presidential Primary

– 2008 GOP Turnout: 553,005

– 2012 GOP Turnout: 554,573

– 2016 GOP Early Vote Turnout: 257,209 (+62% higher than 2012 EV)

– 2016 GOP Total Turnout: 854,792* (+300,219 more voters than 2012 GOP Turnout)

– Previous Delegate Allocations:

Huckabee   25
McCain       19
Romney      8

Santorum   29
Romney     17
Gingrich      9

Speaking of voting results, found this showing the precincts that went for what candidate in Knox County. What it shows is that the more urban, inside-the-city-limits people of Knoxville voted more for Bernie Sanders on the Democratic side. Hillary Clinton carried precincts outside of the city limits, primarily.

Among the Republicans, people in West Knox County and West Knoxville backed Marco Rubio. Pretty much the rest of the county went for Trump. Those areas in West Knox and West Knoxville tend to be among the more educated and wealthy neighborhoods in the county.
