2016 Turnout revisited
December 16, 2016 1 Comment
Very nice chart from Drum putting final 2016 turnout in recent historical perspective:
So, despite early appearances, low turnout was really not the story of this election. Though, it may be fair to say, to some degree, lack of Democratic turnout was the story. How much of this is attributable to dissatisfaction with Clinton? My guess is a lot? How much of that dissatisfaction is due to email-obsessed media coverage and false equivalencies with Trump? Enough to lose an election narrowly in three states, I suspect.
