THE POORER YOU ARE, THE LESS LIKELY YOU ARE TO VOTE -Think about this UK and US

This is an interesting report produced by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation on how poor people are less likely to vote in an election. It is a report about the UK but applies to the US or any other demmocracy. I think I heard on the news the other day that Hillary Clinton will raise a billion US dollars for her campaign and I wondered how much of that would be spent on trying to persuade the poorest 20% of American citizens to vote, the ones that own only 0.3% of US wealth. If you truly believe in a real democracy and not a sham read this. http://www.jrf.org.uk/blog/2015/04/vote?utm_content=bufferb3ab8&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer
