What does it indicate that less than 19% of all Americans voted for Trump? by Tony Garcia

Answer by Tony Garcia:

It indicates exactly what the final tally says, i.e., that Mr. Trump won. Whatever was in the minds of the millions of eligible voters who chose not to vote is immaterial now; they have no choice but to accept the results of their decision to abstain from voting.

When a plebiscite as important as a presidential election does not impel people to vote, that in turn speaks not only to the abysmal character of the candidates, but to a deeper-seated issue—a country bereft of its fervor to remain the hegemon of democracy.
