A new memo from the Democratic National Committee claims that voters are more than ready to shift from a Republican White House: They are showing up in historic numbers to back the Democratic presidential candidates.
"The message this election is clear: voters want change, not the third Bush term they’d get with John McCain,” says Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean. “Democrats are energized all across the country and we’re competing in all 50 states, proving that if Democrats show up and talk about our values, we will win. As we head towards November, I’m confident we will unite behind our nominee and harness this unprecedented enthusiasm to beat John McCain."
His memo details the voter turnout as he suggests the voters will be there in the fall to back the eventual nominee--Sen. Barack Obama or Sen. Hillary Clinton.
According to the memo, found here, the DNC also says that Republicans are iffy on McCain.
"As Democrats continue to see unprecedented enthusiasm for our candidates, the news continues to be worrisome for John McCain. Even after locking up the Republican nomination, 27 percent of Republican voters voted for another Republican candidate in North Carolina, and 23 percent of Republican voters voted for another Republican candidate in Indiana. At the same time, Democrats are campaigning in all fifty states this primary season and bringing new voters into the process. As the numbers show, Democrats are poised for victory in ’08."
