Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In the last three Presidential elections, voter turnout has gone down from 57.1% to 54.9% to 54.6% of the voting age population, so please don't make emotive accusations that I am spreading misinformation.

Yes Hillary won the popular vote by a record margin for someone who lost the electoral college, yes the overall voting age population has been rising, and yes voter suppression has been rampant - I know all that and made no comment contradicting it. But are you saying that a little more unity amongst the Obama coalition wouldn't have tipped her over the edge particularly if she had focused more on her must win battleground states?  Given Trump's campaign style I was amazed she didn't do better amongst women and minorities in particular.
