I like it when other people are too lazy to vote. Not voting is not a
protest, it's the non-voter letting me (or that crazy dude down the
street with the "impeach billary" sticker on his cop-like car) choose
for them. Which is fine by me, it makes my vote count more.

What percentage of the national vote would someone have to get to
actually be elected by the majority of eligible voters? Is over 100%?
