The approximately 2.4 million voters across 14 states who went to the polls in 2016 but left the presidential line blank. Not to mention the other approximately 93 million who stayed home. The difference between Trump’s and Clinton’s votes was only about 3 million. Imagine the difference those 90-odd million voters could have made, especially spread across crucial swing states.

Perhaps the parties should have run better candidates.

My vote is mine, I don’t owe it to anyone. And if nobody earns it, I don’t have to give it away.
