I said the turnout of how well the new government worked was more important than the turnout to vote Ricky, that's all. Considering the U.S. prides itself on being the most democratic and free nation on earth with around 52% turnout in Presidential elections, I don't see the link between high voter turnout and quality of goverment. I guess that's up to who is judging it though. Italy averages a world high ( if I'm not mistaken) 90% voter turnout and they have generally a chaotic and unstable government.
