Is voter apathy driving populism?

The Dutch election saw a halt to the populist movements seen with the Brexit and Donald Trump votes last year.

But with France, Germany and Italy going to the polls later this year, will it be a blip in the movement, or signal a change in course?

The interesting numbers from all three elections mentioned revolve around voter turnout.

The Dutch election saw an 81 percent turnout, Brexit had 72 percent while the United States election saw only 52%.

So if you thought your vote didn’t matter, think again. While the protests in the UK and America are ongoing, it seems the Dutch will sleep easy for now.

Remember, it’s your right to vote and it’s a stronger tool than protest.
