The GOP in the South is now very much like the old PRI was in Mexico.
But in the end, apathetic non-voters are and remain the largest bloc in American electoral politics.
But many adults in the US did not vote for Trump simply because they didn’t vote for anyone at all – 136 million ballots were cast in total, meaning that 45% of adults who live in the US did not participate on election day. There are many reasons why they didn’t vote but one takeaway is clear: the obstacles to voting disproportionately affect people of color.
Those people effectively DID vote for Trump, by not voting.
