And that's some kind of record in the U.S. Sure, it's not nearly as bad as Canada's 59% this past election, though ours was more of a farce: it was the third election in four years, and it ended up forming a third consecutive minority win, which hasn't happened since the sixties.

I guess all the Republicans stayed at home?
