Grays Harbor Politics. Broken down to visual form.

NOTE: These figures represent only Democrat and Republican voters, and do not include any Independents or residents who identify with other parties.

 

The difference between Democratic caucus results and the local Presidential Primary tell a much different story.

In the recent Democratic caucus, both locally and statewide, Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders was chosen by a landslide. Statewide, Sanders won 72.7% of the vote over Hillary Clinton and 72.4% of the caucus votes in Grays Harbor. In Pacific County he won by an even larger margin of 81%.

However, following ballots tabulated on Election night, Clinton saw the majority vote with 51% to Sanders at 49%.

State Democrats have chosen to follow caucus results over the local primary.

On the Republican side, Grays Harbor voters supported Donald Trump by a vast majority of 85.2% over the other options on the statewide ballot, all of which have suspended their campaigns.

Looking at Associated Press results nationwide through the NY Times, Grays Harbor appears to have the highest turnout for Trump outside of West Virginia.

Looking at the first results from Election Night, Grays Harbor is divided almost evenly between Democrat and Republican voters, despite a history of being a “Blue County”.  In total, over 11,500 ballots were returned by Tuesday’s deadline, and over 29% of voters with 6,032 Democrats turning in their ballots compared to 5,398 Republicans.  This does not include the 2403 voters who either declined or neglected to choose a party preference. Those voters will have another opportunity to clarify.

This means that there is a 53% to 47% split between Democrat and Republican, respectively.

Party Circle

 

Looking into the numbers further:

Male vs Female

Republican men outnumber women voters, but barely. With a margin of 2835 to 2709, this is a 51% to 49% split.

47 republicans who voted did not have their gender on file.

Rep people

Democrats saw a larger gap in gender, comparing 3712 women to 2504 men and 53 not on file.

This means a 60% to 40% female majority in the local Democrat voters in this primary.
