It’s wishful thinking — the idea that there must be something behind those…

Suprisingly, the 2020 Kentucky Democratic Primary for U.S. Senate was probably the major driver for the higher than expected voter turnout (initial estimate of 32% voter participation statewide).  Yes, I know that is still a terrible number for any democracy, but the usual voter turnout in Kentucky is around 20% during the primaries.  Therefore, a…
