American politics may not matter to you, but it matters to most Americans.
Well sorry to disappoint you, but according to the U.S. NATIONAL CENTER FOR
Analysts who think everyone should vote called the turnout for the 2000 election "dismal," since only a little over half of the voting age population voted.
A total of 105,399,313 citizens, or 51.2 percent of adult residents of the United States, voted in 2000 -- up from 96,277,872, or 49 percent, in 1996.
So clearly with only 51.2% of eligible voters even bothering to vote, it is damn safe to say that half the American polulation doesn't give a damn about politics afterall.
