According to a recent survey conducted by The New York Times, only 9% of America’s 324 million population had chose Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton as nominees in the run upto US presidential elections. This signifies that out of the total population in the US, 103 million are children, non-citizens or ineligible to vote. 88 million eligible adults do not vote at all, even in general elections. This finding is based on the share of eligible adults who voted in the 2012 general elections. This data has been compiled by The New York Times using statistics from the US Census Bureau, 2012 general election turnout data from Federal Election Commission, 2016 primary turnout and candidate vote totals data from Dave Leip’s Atlas of US Presidential Elections, The Sentencing Project and Pew Research Center.
