80% of black Chicagoans don't think Mayor Emmanuel cares about them

And yet:


Voter turnout almost a record low on Election Day

As the mayoral and several aldermanic races go to runoff elections, reports of low voter turnout at this year's polls may have been a contributing factor.

And yet:


During the Illinois primary in 2016, only 36.9% of citizens went to cast their vote. The statistics are even more appalling with young voters. In the 2014 midterm elections, merely 16.3% of 18-29 year olds went to the polls.

Emmanuel lost 1/3 of his 2011 votes in 2015. That means 1/3 of the people who voted for him to be mayor his first term, didn't vote for him to be mayor his 2nd term. Because he still managed to win again, it means those lost voters didn't vote for ANYONE in 2015. They stayed away from the polls.

Of course the OVERWHELMING majority of black Chicagoans don't think the mayor cares about them. Why should he when they've "dropped out?"
