Where is the Democracy?

What do these numbers mean?

28 % of the eligible voting population elected Bush/Cheney

That is 8% less than Hitler received when he was elected Chancellor of Germany

The data for my numbers:

217 M POTENTIAL voters (see US census)

122M voted in 2004 election

Bush/Cheney received 50.7% of the vote: 61M votes

Divide 61M/217M to get percentage of voters who RULE the country

Wondering what happened to those other 95M people who didn't vote? Guess...
