Orlando Sentinel’s Central Florida 100: DEMOCRACY WINS

, , Leave a comment

In the midst of what could probably be described as the most vicious campaign in recent history – two years and counting – for the presidency of the United States, and regardless of whether your candidate will ultimately win or lose when all the votes are finally fully tabulated and the lawsuits resolved, what is worth pausing to note is that 160 million votes were cast – the largest number in history – at a 67% voter turnout rate, the largest in 120 years. In this election, one candidate won and one candidate lost, but, at the end of the day, American democracy was the real and clear winner.
