Infographic of the Day: How Many Americans Really Supported Clinton and Trump

The New York Times counted the number of US citizens who voted for one of the main candidates for US President.

Alicia Parlapiano and Adam Pearce from The New York Times published an infographic where they visualized the real number of American citizens who voted for nominating Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump as main candidates for US President from Democratic and Republican parties.

The visualization looks like a simple scheme that shows parts of US population.

Namely, out of the 323 million people who live in the US, 111 have no citizenship, are children, or are criminals without the right to vote. Another 88 million Americans just don’t turn up to vote. We should add 77 million who did not participate in the primaries and 30 more million who did vote at the primaries, but gave their votes to alternative candidates.

This way, only 9% of Americans voted for Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump as main candidates for US President.
