There are only a few known Pure Blood families in the Harry Potter world, but if this was a real world, I think they would be the majority. Voldemort’s sole purpose was to get rid of Muggles. I think this can stem from the hate he had on his father growing up. His deep rooted hatred led him to commit murders and betrayals.
In the Chamber of Secrets, we take a peek into this world of hatred.

Kind of the opposite of Muggle-born wizards, but Squibs are quite unusual” (p 145) By knowing some spoilers I have overheard from here and there throughout my life, I know that Ron and Hermoine become a couple.
