This week's word in the news: ELECTORATE

DEFINITION:
A body of qualified voters.


FOUND IN THE NEWS:
The coming presidential race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump begins in a virtual dead heat, a competition between two candidates viewed unfavorably by a majority of the current electorate and with voters motivated as much by whom they don't like as by whom they do, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.
