1 good thing Donald Trump did for politics

過去4年間, you would have been hard-pressed to find anyone who didn’t feel strongly about President Donald Trump, love him or hate him.

And that was pretty much itsince everyone (or almost everyone) fit into one of those two categories. Which is a bad thing when it comes to our increasing polarization and our growing inability to talk with people with whom we disagree on politics.
But which, それが判明, is a very, very good thing when it comes to voter turnout.
    ザ・ 2020 選挙, according to early estimates, will have turnout of at least 61% of eligible voters the highest since 1960, いつ 63.8% of eligible voters turned out to choose John F. Kennedy over Richard Nixon.

    And in terms of the raw number of votes cast, インクルード 2020 election is already the biggest ever. Even as the count continues nationwide, 148 百万票 have been cast for Trump and the man who beat him, President-elect Joe Biden.
    By way of comparison, 大まかに 129 million votes were cast in the 2016 race for Trump and Hillary Clinton.

    And putting the two side by side, you can see that the number of people voting Democratic increased from 65.9 百万 2016 に 76.3 百万 2020 while those voting Republican rose from 63 million four years ago to 71.6 million last Tuesday.
    That means Democrats have already gained 10.4 百万票 (そして、カウント) から 2016 に 2020, while Republicans have netted 8.6 百万.

      That delta explains why Biden is set to win the popular vote by a significantly larger number than Clinton did, even while losing the Electoral College, に 2016. (ノート: Democrats have now won the popular vote in seven of the last eight presidential elections, a feat not accomplished by one party since 1828.)
      ポイント: It’s been six decades since we’ve seen voter turnout higher than that of the 2020 選挙. And you can thank Donald Trumpand all his divisivenessfor making sure voters in this country knew the stakes of voting (か否か).
