Donald Trump could end the presidential primary season with more individual votes than any other Republican candidate in modern history, according to an analysis of the results so far.

Nearly 10.1 million Americans have voted for the real estate tycoon in GOP primaries so far, including the results from Tuesday’s five Northeastern contests.

That’s already about 200,000 more than 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney had at the end of the entire primary season four years ago.

The modern record is 10.8 million votes, set by President George W. Bush in 2000, according to University of Minnesota political science professor Eric Ostermeier, who writes the Smart Politics blog.
