2. Impressive.

 

If 40,000-plus are registering just before the deadline they are bloody well intending to vote. And we know who that surge is going to benefit.

But it's still only a fraction compared to the incredible 5 million (I'm estimating and I think lowballing) eligible to vote in this "closed primary." A relatively small fluctuation compared to the 2008 turnout of 1.8 million could completely overturn expectations in either direction. Many turns that influence the turnout are possible in the next eight days. It's wonderfully unpredictable.
