Super Tuesday: How Restonians Voted

by Karen Goff — March 2, 2016 at 10:00 am 8 Comments

Marco Rubio/Credit: US SenateHillary Clinton/HillaryClinton.comWhile Donald Trump won Virginia, Fairfax County and Reston voters chose Florida Sen. Marco Rubio as their top candidate in the 2016 Republican Presidential Primary on Tuesday. Rubio won in all 14 of Reston’s precincts.

On the Democrat side, local results were in line with state results, with frontrunner Hillary Clinton winning Virginia, as well as Fairfax County and all Reston precincts.

Turnout in Fairfax was 22 percent for the Democratic primary and 20 percent for the Republicans. In the Hunter Mill District, it was 25 percent and 21 percent, respectively.

That’s a robust turnout for a primary, county records show. In the 2012 Republican Presidential Primary, turnout was 6.4 percent. In the 2008 primaries, turnout was 9.8 percent for the Republicans and 26 percent for the Democrats.

Below are 2016 primary county and precinct-level stats from the Virginia Board of Elections. Ballots contained names of candidates who have dropped out of the race. Results shown are for candidates who are still running.

    Boy Marco’s high heels were not high enough to take the state.

  • susie

    Well Restonians, if you don’t want to see your taxes go up and up..this is not the way to go about it.

  • Mike M

    Interesting Super Tuesday. The two candidates with the most despicable personal attributes are headed to the final election. Yes, Virginia, there is an anti-Christ.

    • susie

      One is a traitor and future felon – the other is just LOUD. No comparison.

  • Expat

    As an expat living in Reston, I can tell you the rest of the world is scratching their heads right now wondering how someone who has attacked Mexicans, Muslims and the Pope can be so popular? It’s kind of like when someone makes an awkward statement and you’re initially unsure as to whether or not they’re serious… you chortle softly to start with, until it dawns upon you that the speaker is not joking. Your expression turns to sheer terror and you swiftly turn on your heels and walk away.

    • susie

      That must be quite an honor to speak for the “rest of the world”.

      • Expat

        If you don’t believe me, try navigating away from Fox news and check out the BBC’s website in the UK, or websites from the Antipodes, or Africa. We were amused to start with… as time goes on though, we’re becoming more and more concerned. We’re watching a slow motion car crash!
