This Map Shows How ‘Did Not Vote’ Actually Won the Election By a Huge Margin

A resourceful Redditor by the name of Taillesskangaru looked at voting statistics from the 2016 election and found that the real “winner” of the presidential election was people who did not vote. As BrillantMaps.com notes, “If ‘did not vote’ had been a candidate in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, it would have won by a landslide.”

Interestingly, in this year’s election, neither Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump got a majority of votes cast. And for only the 5th time in nearly 200 years, the person who got the most votes did not win the election.
