U.S. Election of Donald Trump Saw Lowest Voter Turnout in 20 Years

Washington, November 15 (RHC)-- In the United States, last week's presidential election saw the lowest voter turnout in two decades.  According to reports, Election Day last Tuesday saw the lowest participation in electoral politics since 1996. 

While Trump beat out Democratic Party contender Hillary Clinton in the electoral college by a margin of 290 to 228, he actually lost the popular vote, with roughly 60.27 million votes to Clinton's 60.84 million, according to the New York Times. 
 
And even though overall turnout plummeted, a few crucial swing states such as Florida, North Carolina and Michigan saw an increased turnout, according to CNN.
