3. 1) Democrats get excited by presidential elections. Midterms are booooring. Or something...

2) Republicans SHOW UP for midterms. The GOP reliably gives them ballot issues they care about in the midterms, and they show up. You know -- God, Guns, & Gays?

Once in office, the majority party has the say on issues like redistricting, and the GOP say, "Let's gerrymander the hell out of this place!"

Rinse, repeat. As long as Democrats keep sitting on their asses during midterms, this will be the pattern.

3) Returning to point 2, The Republican Party has been playing the Long Game for two generations. Democrats -- well, I'll let you fill in the blanks from your experience here.

This is the short version, obviously.
