Re: OT - I need your help
It means that politicians are forced to cater to every demographic, rather than those who are most likely to turn out. So like for example because young people rarely vote in large numbers, policies that positively affect young people are generally given less priority than those that affect older people, who will actually vote. Or instead of caring about rich people problems (let's say 5% of the population) they'll have more motivation to want to cater to other people, since non-rich people are more populous/
