62% of EU Voters Don't Care About European Elections
Sxity-two percent of the EU voters are “not at all” or “not much” interested in the European Parliament elections in May, shows a survey of Ipsos-MORI.
It was conducted in April. A total of 8 833 people were polled in Belgium, Britain, Croatia, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain and Sweden.
Only 35% of respondents said they would definitely vote, much below the 43% average turnout at the last election in 2009.
The greatest enthusiasm was registered in Belgium (53%), where voting is required by law, followed by France (44%) and the Netherlands (41%). The lowest was in Britain (27%) and Poland (20%).
Far-right groups are expected to do well or even win the elections in both France and the Netherlands, potentially making them a powerful force in the next European Parliament. The right-wing UKIP party is also expected to do well in Britain.

So to summarize, only far right people are voting? As obviously the general population has no interest in politics and do not vote, the whole concept of "democracy" is flawed.
I rather have a good dictator that know what they are doing, a good economic model and society, instead of a bunch of mixed rats with different ideologies in parliament.
The worst plaque humanity has even recieved is called "liberalism".
