NH: turnout for Dems “huge”

Would you bet against this:


If so there are plenty of people who want your money. Obama to win today is a 96% probability say the markets (and so do the last polls).

Meanwhile turnout is huge:

So here’s a major tidbit about turnout. MSNBC just reported that “the NH Secretary of State’s office is in the process of locating extra ballots to ship to towns that expressed concerns that supplies are running low. Concern is primarily on the Democratic side.”

It’s only 1:00 PM and towns are already worried about running low on ballots. Wow.

ABC has a report that turnout is “absolutely huge”:

ABC News’ Karen Travers Reports: New Hampshire Deputy Secretary of State Dave Scanlan told ABC News that turnout among primary voters today is “absolutely huge” — and there are concerns about running out of ballots in towns like Portsmouth, Keene, Hudson and Pelham.

“Turnout is absolutely huge and towns are starting to get concerned that they may not have enough ballots,” Scanlan said. “We are working on those issues. Everything else seems to be going smoothly.”

After the jump, even Republican strongholds are running low on Dem ballots – meaning, independents are breaking to the Dems (and likely Obama).

Scanlan said that the Secretary of State’s office is sending additional ballots to Portsmouth and Keene (traditionally Democratic strongholds), Hudson (Republican leaning with significant numbers of independents) and Pelham (large number of independents).

According to Scanlan, the ballot strain seems to be on Democratic ballots, which suggests that the undeclared voters are breaking for the Democratic primary.
