Meanwhile, someone explain this to me: if you ask fifteen people what they think about politics, 5 say they don’t care one way or the other, 6 say they favor the opposition and 4 say they favor the government, is it a distortion to say that 60% are against the government? In a strict sense, I suppose it is – but how quickly would you get bored of an article that repeated, each time, “60% (of politically engaged electors)”…again and again within an article? Fairly silly.

If you don’t care, you don’t vote. If you don’t vote, you don’t count. Ugly, but a simple reality in democracies.
