Who Are Those Early GOP Primary Voters?

Turnout has been huge for the gubernatorial race.  According to the Quorum Report [sub. req.], Democratic polling firm Opinion Analysis finds that in the five major counties, 16.7 percent of the Republican vote is coming from people who voted in the Democratic primary in 2008 (in Travis County, it’s 28 percent). The report notes that these are not regular primary voters. Key quote:

“Is this crossover good news for Kay Bailey Hutchison?  Not necessarily, but I doubt that they are crossing over to stand up and be counted for Rick Perry.”
