Democrats have far higher turnout in Iowa than Republicans

Devilstower on DailyKos:

Last night, the Republicans produced around 115,000 voters -- an impressive 30% increase.

But the Democrats turned out 236,000. That's an increase of roughly one whole helluva lot.

And it's a huge indicator of both how energized Democrats are this year, and how ready independents are to put their chips on the D line.

I don't know where Devilstower got turnout numbers, but this NYT story gives a similar number of 239,000 for the Democratic turnout.
