New report details just how rigged the midterms are in favor of Republicans
A new report by the Brennan Center for Justice suggests that congressional races are so heavily rigged in favor of Republicans that the United States can barely be described as a democratic republic. The upshot of their analysis is that, to win a bare majority of the seats in the U.S. House, Democrats would likely have to win the national popular vote by nearly 11 points.
To put that number in perspective, neither party achieved an 11-point popular vote win in the last several decades. The last time this happened, according to the Brennan Center, was 1982, when a deep recession led the opposition Democrats to a 269 seat majority against President Reagans Republicans.
This is wrong and we need to do everything in our power to end this injustice against the American people.
Then went in detail to explain how a 7-8 point win should be more than enough to swing the House.
It disenfranchises millions in California alone, but also across the country.
We need to feel the conviction that this is dreadfully wrong and we need to fix it the way those Stoneman Douglas high school students did.
And the next time someone posts that right-wing lie they've saturated the nation with that Democrats didn't win because we didn't speak about what people care about, respond with truth and conviction!
