Phillip Adams continues losing it:
In the US, fewer and fewer people vote at all.
Wrong. According to an MIT study, “17 million more people voted in 2004 than in 2000, a 14 percent increase.”
Hence the unpalatable fact that more Americans voted in TV’s American Idol than in the presidential elections.
The host, Ryan Seacrest, said 63.4 million votes were cast this season …
That includes, obviously, multiple votes sent by individual viewers. Phil’s error is widely shared.
