Republicans and Democrats each only comprise ~15% of voters

Ask people this question: how many voters are comprised of Republicans or Democrats? Most will respond with “40%-ish.” Actually, Republicans have never comprised more than 15% of registered voters. Democrats – peaked at 19% of voters. But since we only have one vote, we must choose between extremes, so we artificially boost their results in general elections, and they say, “wow, look how many of us there are.”
