Illinois Primary 2016 turnout up 53% among Republicans, unchanged among Democrats

Democrat turnout in the primary in 2016 was about the same as in 2008: 1.97 million v 2 million.

Republican turnout was considerably higher in 2016 over prior years. In both 2008 and 2012 Republicans turned out 0.9 million voters, but this year it's up to 1.38 million, 53% higher.

The reason?

Well it ain't Ted Cruz.
