According to Wikipedia's article on Democracy Index, the United States ranks 21st with the lowest indicators being "Functioning of government" and "Political participation".

I am wondering why such a relatively low score in the context of universal suffrage (virtually anyone who is more than 18 years old can vote and registration may be accomplished when obtaining a driver's license).

Question: Why does the US have such a low score for the "Political participation" factor in the Democracy index?
