  •  'far more' (0+ / 0-)

    How do those numbers support your contention above that the country is "far more" Democratic than Republican?  It's a 4 pt. plurality -- not even in the ballpark of a majority -- that was even smaller a few years ago.

    Also, to your contention that gerrymandering makes districts less competitive, see Alan Abramowitz's study to the contrary.

    And it will take more than fixing the electoral college math to make Dems win national elections.  We lost the popular vote in '04 by more than 3%.
