That's because an estimated 80 million voters exercised their right not to vote while the winner, President Obama received just south of 70 million.
I think it would be interesting if we had a minimum percentage of votes required before someone could become president.
The current political strategy seems to be to tear the other guy to shreds so his voters don't show up.
But if the winner needed at least 75 percent of eligible voters to show up they might not be so focused on suppressing votes.
They might actually have to focus on explaining why we should vote for them.
It's worth a thought.
I'm JB and that's the way it oughta be.
