NYC's mayoral primary shows where the city is headed
When you talk about increases in turnout, is that the turnout rate or the total number of votes? It's hard to know what's going on without denominators--whether some areas are becoming more active, gaining population, and/or seeing demographic change that predicts higher turnout.
Ross, just to make the subtext text here: that "immigrant Asian community that have yet to reach their voting potential" comprise most of the 10% of voters who put Yang first, right? Or at least, I would assume so anecdotally just based on the sheer number of "vote Yang" signs I saw (and still see) walking under the el in Bensonhurst; probably siphoned off some of Adams' Orthodox support too. Kind of goes against the media narrative that the guy was a bobo propped up by the extremely online (but would totally explain John Liu's 180 from dismissal to endorsement, and that whole "he's our AOC" line that he got ribbed for).
