Four years ago and last week

Gov. Scott Walker said last week that he is likely to start out the gubernatorial race behind.

There has been concern in Republican circles about the larger turnout for Democrats than Republicans in last week’s primary. And Republicans certainly need to get out and get out the vote.

Keep in mind, though, that (1) Democratic turnout may well have included people who intend to vote Republican in November but voted Democrat because of (2) the gubernatorial race and because (3) they intended to vote for whoever won the U.S. Senate Republican primary.

For those who panic about polls three months before an election, read this from last week and this from November 2014.
