    I mean, it may feel as though it is, but Democratic primaries in Kansas have traditionally been wildly low turnout affairs.  They know they aren't voting against Republicans, their races for the most part were settled long before hand (Davis had no challenger, most challengers were minor candidates) and that meant that there wasn't a lot of motivation to actually vote.

    Meanwhile, on the Republican side you had two HUGE motivating races in Wolf V Roberts and a protest vote against Brownback.

    So, I wouldn't judge much of anything by primary turnout numbers.
