Trump, never one to miss an opportunity to deflect blame, suggested at a rally in Wyoming that this is precisely what happened. It’s an appealing frame for him, certainly. But data released this week from the state (from Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger’s own office, as it happens) shows that it’s not actually what happened.
The most recent data suggest that nearly 67,000 people who cast ballots in the Republican primary last month had voted in the Democratic primary in 2020. But we can break out those numbers further, looking at how those 67,000 voters had voted in prior party primaries. And when we do that, we get a better answer to our original question.
