      So, about 135 million should turn out.  A dip in turnout percentage from last time would probably mean an turnout between 131 and 135.

        OFA's "voter index" has 170 million, that's what I read somewhere, I think a couple times.  It might've been one of Sasha Issenberg's pieces, I don't remember.

        And that sounds about right, there are more inactive registered voters than some realize...it really is still in the tens of millions.

        •  There were 146 registered earlier in the year (0+ / 0-)

          I doubt 24 million have been added since then.

            Seriously what is up with that turnout figure.  I never would have guessed they'd be that low.
