WPAi’s Kyle Loveless discusses low Super Tuesday voter turnout with Oklahoma’s News9.

Kyle Loveless works with WPA Intelligence analyzing polling data and he says the lack of competition could be the reason for a dip in voter turnout. “Rewind back to 2016 when it was a wide-open primary of presidential campaigns, you saw a little bit more activity,” Loveless said.

Additionally, data he shared with News 9 shows another trend shift in the 2024 primaries. “What we’ve seen so far in early voting is something that goes counter to what conventional wisdom has been,” Loveless said.

He says traditionally, Oklahoma Republicans are wary of early and absentee voting. “Primarily democrats have seemed to be the party that have embraced non-traditional voting whether that be in person or mail in balloting,” Loveless explained.

But that’s not the case with this cycle. “In person and absentee voting that just concluded yesterday, according to the state election board, republicans are dominating,” Loveless said.
