Re: American democracy

"Well, you get the government you majority vote for (unless there's electoral irregularities at work)."

In general governments are made of the largest minority, not a majority.

IIRC the actual figures of population voting are not in Trumps favour - but it's only the weird electoral collage system (paint by numbers) that actually votes for a president...
