Leaving political capital on the table

Leaving political capital on the table

Imagine what American politics would be like if that chart were reversed. In reality, most Americans who make under $30,000 don’t vote and most Americans who make more than $30,000 do vote. But consider what public policy might look like if the slope moved in the other direction and lower-income voters dominated, while the rich generally didn’t bother to show up on Election Day.

Fascinating analysis.

On that note, don’t you want to register to vote?
