11. The GOP gerry mandered the Fuck out of Michigan
They did an excellent job of insuring that they would get more representation even when the Democrats get more votes! The GOP has a majority in the House (it will shrink after 1/1), a supermajority in the Senate and they own the Supreme Court and many of the lower courts too. I hate to say it, but our Democratic party leadership has let us down in Michigan. We should have taken back many more seats in 2008 and 2012, but we didn't. That's why this happened.
