South Carolina exit polls: More black, moderate voters turn out Voters in South Carolina’s primary were more diverse and more moderate than those in the first three early-state contests for the Democratic presidential nomination, early results from the NBC News Exit Poll shows. More than half of those voting in Saturday's primary — 55 percent — identified as African American, a dramatically higher share than in the Iowa, New Hampshire or Nevada Democratic presidential contests. Just half of voters said they consider themselves to be liberal, compared to all the previous contests where liberals made up at least six-in-ten voters. And just four-in-ten South Carolina voters said they hold a college degree; by contrast, college graduates were in the majority of the electorates in the first three contests.

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump · 15m Sleepy Joe Biden’s victory in the South Carolina Democrat Primary should be the end of Mini Mike Bloomberg’s Joke of a campaign. After the worst debate performance in the history of presidential debates, Mini Mike now has Biden split up his very few voters, taking many away!
as it states the main diffrence this time is there aren't any republican primaries going on due to trump being the incumbent and no real challenger so its mostly to skew the dems numbers and make it more expensive for them to campaign and attempting to sow as much chaos with again the stated goal of being a contested dem convention
Frequently Asked Questions. What is Operation Chaos 2020? Operation Chaos 2020 is a program to encourage Republican voters to participate in the Democrat primary. Whose idea was this? The original “Operation Chaos” was started in February 2008 by Rush Limbaugh. Rush encouraged GOP voters in key swing states to support Hillary Clinton in order to prolong the Democrat primary. After Rush started agitating for this program, Hillary went from sure loser to a contender: for awhile. This was particularly effective in the Indiana primary. This time around Operation Chaos 2020 is being sponsored by the Conservative Defense Fund. Wait, Democrats can vote in Republican primaries? That’s not right! Exactly. Although you can only vote in one party primary at a time, under current South Carolina law there is nothing the Republican Party can do to prevent bona fide Democrats from voting in the GOP primary. That means, in large areas of the state, where there is frequently no competitive Democrat primary (which is often the case), Democrats can just vote in the Republican primary and vote for the most liberal candidate or for the candidate they think will fare worst in the general election. Since Democrats can vote in Republican primaries that means Republicans can vote in Democrat primaries: thus Operation Chaos 2020. What do we hope to gain? First, we want to prolong the primary to make it as costly and damaging as we can. So far, the only efforts have bene for Democrats to cross-over and support liberal Republicans like Lindsey Graham and John McCain and perhaps a few cases on the state level. Won’t I be tarred forever as a Democrat? No. Operation Chaos 2020 is a certified conservative program and since there is no corresponding Republican primary, you are excused.
