Trump the Vote?

Given the enormous increase in voter turnout during this year’s midterm elections, doesn’t President Trump deserve a lot of credit for this swell at the polls? (See chart below for average voter turnout rates in previous U.S. elections this century.) After all, whether by design or by accident, Trump was somehow able to accomplish what so many other politicians, sundry rock stars, and various assorted do-gooders weren’t able to do: he got more people to vote than ever before!
