    I read that a large group of previously registered GOP female voters in FL are now actively campaigning against Meatball and have flipped to the Dems.

      If the electoral system was responsive to actual voter preference on policy this would be a bigger wave than 1932. But the fix is in. The EC and Senate are tilted towards rural ignoramuses. The House seats are all fixed and safe. Most importantly, Republican voters are within such a bubble of epistemic closure they will never connect their problems with the reactionary interests who cause them.

      There is no way to effect a sea change and realign our politics to the real values and interests of voters. We need a significant reform to further democratize the United States and break the chokehold of the wealthy.

      • If that was the case the Midterms would have gone differently. If everything is rigged, why do the people rigging it keep losing? Because the majority of voters don't fall into the loud bubbles on each side.

        No wonder you defend Nate Silver so much. He is as defeatist and out of touch with the average voter as you are. At least you don't have terrible COVID takes that you double down on so you got him beat there.

        • The fix to the house and the EC is to expand the house by 2 or 3x. It hasn't expanded in over 100 years even as population has exploded.

          The Senate is what it is, unfortunately.

            Same with the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court is undersized. Even the Senate. We now refuse to add States even though we had been doing it all along. DC and Puerto Rico are long overdue.

              Add more states. Puerto Rico, DC for starters. I don't know how we combine the 8 states in the empty middle of the country but that should be done somehow.

                Has to pass through Congress and all states involved would have to agree and approve it.

                  • “No middle ground,” Tommy Tuberville told me, saying he would continue holding up DOD nominees (more than 250 and counting) until the Pentagon scraps its abortion policy and the Senate holds a vote on it. (Such a vote would fail to get 60 votes.)

                        You need 3/4s of Congress right? I guess it is fair to say we will never get that. Just too many racist states.

                          1. The inhabitants of the proposed new state are imbued with and are sympathetic toward the principles of democracy as exemplified in the American Constitution.

                          2. A majority of the electorate wish for statehood.

                          3. The proposed new state has sufficient population and resources to support state government and carry its share of the cost of Federal Government.[8]

                          Simple majority to pass through Congress, with the usual cloture requirement in the Senate. So, 60 Senators. Still unlikely though not impossible.

                            Combining states won't add more states. But, we could split California into about five states. A couple of Connecticut sized states around LA and the Bay area, and three more for the rest of the territory.
                            That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                              Yeah yeah, we know what your game is in splitting up CA. We do that, you gotta let in DC and combine some of those plains states that would still result in one of the smallest states population-wise.
