So whomever wins the Presidency I feel like this election season more than any other has made the masses recognize how messed up our two-party system is-- electoral vs popular, super delegates, how little third parties actually impact things...
Come November I feel like both parties are going to seriously change their policies in the wake of this election. My dream of a legit third party or country splitting up into new unions is never going to happen, but I do think some radical changes are in store.
What I can't figure is, how the actual voting will go to effect such changes. I don't mean who will win, but how many people are going to actually vote.
I feel like the odds are high for mass abstaining given how hated both the candidates are. The Bernie or bust people will throw their votes away or not vote, educated Republicans won't vote for Trump, people who tow their party lines are likely hard pressed to like either candidate. I can forsee a situation where voting numbers hit a record low...
I can just as easily see record turnout with liberals dead set on keeping Trump out, and conservatives just voting to block Hillary.
Maybe Kurgan or Amanda or somebody much smarter about politics on me can forecast what they think is going to happen?
