In the recent U.S Presidential Election, only 57.9 % of people have participated in the voting and the remaining have not participated and virtually sat on the vote. The reports say that it is because of this non-voting that Trump could win the election and this means that the remaining have rejected Mr. Trump. This is not clear how this logical statement is correct. If 57.9 % have participated in the elections there are voters who voted for Trump and also for Hillary. Similarly, among the people who did not vote in the elections, there might be voters who are more in favor of Mr. Trump than Mr. Hillary. It should be remembered that most fo the skewed voters in the Elections have voted in favor of Mr. Trump as they got confused with the scams of Mrs. Hillary Clinton and also with her health condition. Is there anybody who prohibited the people from voting? Are the people of U.S so unaware of the value of their vote? Has the Government not appraised the people of the U.S of the value of their vote?
