  •  They lose popular vote and get 80% of the seats?? (8+ / 0-)

    How in the world can that be possible and legal?  Unbelievable.

    •  It happened in the federal elections as well. (6+ / 0-)

      Democrats got a majority of the popular vote in the House, but Republicans still have a majority of seats. When the Republicans won big in 2010 they got control of many state legislatures, which means that they got to decide the boundaries for Congressional districts.
