Icon81 Poor people die younger in the U.S. That skews American politics.

Washington Post 31 May 2018
Add to this negative trend the fact that mortality among the poor increases during middle age ó which is when citizens generally get more involved in politics. The premature disappearance of the poor, then, occurs precisely at the moment when they would be expected to reach their "participatory peak" in society. But they donít live long enough to achieve that milestone.
