83% of American Non-Voters
People Who Believe It Doesn’t Matter Who Wins the Presidency are a cynical bunch. This Demographic never votes, preferring instead to sit at home in November and argue that every President is corrupt, and their policies will have zero impact on their lives personally.1
People Who Believe It Doesn’t Matter Who Wins make up a big percentage of the approximately 45% of Eligible Americans Voters who didn’t participate in 2004.
Within this Demo are People Who Assert That They Will Vote For The Candidate Who Leaves Them Alone The Most. These People become very upset when their busy, important lives are interrupted by a phone call (the horror!) or are approached on the street by a Volunteer for the Campaign asking them if they have decided who they will be supporting in the Election (how rude!).
There is a valid reason for this: People Who Assert That They Will Vote For The Candidate Who Leaves Them Alone The Most are so important that they can not be bothered to engage their fellow citizens in conversation about the Political Process.
However, after the last eight years, People Who Think It Doesn’t Matter Who Wins have had to learn a hard lesson in civics.
And this time, People Who Believe It Doesn’t Matter Who Wins are even considering exercising their right to participate in our Democracy!2
1 Because after all, YOU are all that matters.
2 The others are considering moving to a place where no one has the right to vote, like North Korea or Prison.
