More Americans voted for a Democratic House than a GOP

Americans Actually Voted for a Democratic House
Think Progress: "Although a small number of ballots remain to be counted, as of this writing, votes for a Democratic candidate for the House of Representatives outweigh votes for Republican candidates... 53,952,240 votes were cast for a Democratic candidate for the House and only 53,402,643 were cast for a Republican -- meaning that Democratic votes exceed Republican votes by more than half a million."

redistricting kept our gains at a minimum.

3. That's a mandate - more votes for Senate, House & Presidency?

Never let anyone say there is no mandate.

4. The GOP gerrymandering tactic known as packing and cracking

They pack the minorities into safe Dem seats where they'll get at least 80% of the vote and crack the remaining districts so white Dems are underrepresented.

If it were up to me--and if I could get off scot-free just like the rethugs do--I'd give packing and cracking a new meaning. I'd crack their skulls open and pack the contents in a container to ship to KKKarl Rove (politically and metaphorically speaking, that is).

5. I'll have to remember that and make sure others understand that Republicans weren't

really voted into office.
