Are you all chilling out like Flavio?
Wash your mouth out!! If that happened I'd be looking to emigrate! Mind you, why don't you have him as your President? After all your current one is not exactly Mr Popular is he?Can he be chosen as a prime minister for Britain? After all, I think you are going to go through a few more over the next year or so.
Well, it is really dependent on turn-out. 55.7% of the registered votes actually bothered to vote in 2016. This is fairly typical. We have not had turn-out for a presidential election above 60% since 1968. It was 49% in 1996.Which means you may well get him again next year.
It is unusually low and it drives our elections. Turn-out rates vary by age and race. Old white people have much higher turn-out rates. Young voters, and black and latino voters tend to have lower rates. So, for example, in the off-year elections the turn-out rates are lower (off year meaning those elections that occur every two years that do not occur when there is a presidential election). The off-year elections are usually around 40%, which tends to favor the Republicans. In 2018 turnout was 50.3%, which is unusually high (it was 36.4% in 2014). The House of Representatives went Democratic as a result.I'm amazed the turnouts are that low.
The UK's lowest general election turnout since WW2 was in 2001 when just under 60 percent turned out. Since then its gone back up to the high 60's.
