9. Not hand-wringing. Serious questions.

If they gerrymander every state legislature they control(which means they'll also gerrymander every Congressional district in those states)...AND they sabotage presidential elections by tying electoral vote distribution to the gerrymandered congressional districts...then it really isn't as simple as saying "we have more votes".

Gerrymandering can having more votes meaningless. So is it going to be worth running in any race where you already know the thing is gerrymandered? Do you really say "no biggie" to that?

I'm just trying to discuss how we come up with a strategy if elections are made totally illegitimate in a lot of states.

And we SHOWED up at the polls in Wisconsin and Michigan and Pennsylvania and we couldn't flip the legislatures there, even though the raw vote counts clearly showed that they wanted those legislatures flipped.

So you couldn't just leave it at "keep voting".
