Re: <nettime> Third Party Politics, or After the Republi-crat Orgy


I have a little printout on my wall which has been
there since Mr Clinton won his first term in 1992.
I keep it there for a periodic reality check.
It reads:
=======
US PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION 1992
Voted - 54%
Abstained - 46% 

Of the 54% who voted, 
CLINTON received 43%
BUSH received 38%
PEROT received 19%

So not only did Clinton fail to get a majority 
of the votes cast, but approximately 75% 
of the elctorate either abstained or voted 
for somebody else.
========

cheers

bob
