Brian Schaffner commenting about how progressive Democrats are working to boost voter turnout

Brian F. Schaffner, political science, commenting in a news story about how progressive Democrats are working to boost voter turnout in the upcoming mid-term elections, says voter participation is one of the keys to success. “If 2016 had happened with the same voter turnout patterns as 2012 then [Hillary] Clinton would have won. Clearly turnout can influence outcomes,” Schaffner says. (The Atlantic, 8/5/18)
