Primarily for the voter turnout reason you highlight below. 58% turnout of people of voting age, despite a clearly dangerous, unqualified, uncivilized man on the GOP ticket
I’m harsher on the citizenry than you are Nate.

Thanks for reading Jon!

I hear you. Personally I’m not blaming only the voters for low turnout. Uninspiring candidates on both sides in 2016. We also underestimate how much of a burden it can be to vote if you work an hourly job, don’t control your schedule and have to worry about caring for family. The fact that our election is on a Tuesday is still ridiculous to me.
