US to see historic low voter turnout: Analyst



Press TV has conducted an interview with Wayne Madsen, an investigative journalist in Tampa, and David Lindorff, an investigative journalist in Philadelphia, to discuss the upcoming US presidential election.

Madsen states the Republicans and Democrats’ monopoly on American politics has managed to come up with the two most “disastrous” candidates in recent years.

He goes on to say that the general election in the United States is going to see a very “historic low voter turnout.”

Lindorff, for his part, said the Republicans are kind of a “dying party” in terms of public support because of the growing Hispanic population which has been really brutally attacked by Donald Trump.

He also said the Americans feel that their government does not have their interests at heart.

“There is a great deal of anger in the US but it is kind of unfocused. People feel that they have a government which is completely and totally corrupt that is responsive only to large financial interests and wealthy people and does not act in their interest,” he said.
