Let me just make a couple of observations as an outside ob&;&ver.s#8212er#8212;——–In Germany, the first number that is recorded after an election is the voter turnout, this is then broken down by party and candidates.The voter turnout (voters as a percentage of those elegible) in the US this year is estimated at 58% – lower than 2008. In federal elections in Germany it used to be above 80% 25 years ago. In the last election in 2009 it dropped to 71%. That people have to stand in line for hours to vote – this was so also in 2008 – is something unimaginable in Germany. I have never seen a line in front of a voting station and I never waited more than a couple of minutes to vote.
