Red states occupy over 65% of the US.


Yes. Blue states are generally smaller, even though they have a higher population. Too bad for Republicans that buffalo can't vote, huh? (j/k)...

Even in solid-red-Republican Texas there's still enclaves of us Democrats!

And remember, our Founding Fathers didn't entirely trust the common man to have good judgement. That's why we have the silly Electoral College -- it also means that it's almost impossible to rig a state's votes (and also means that our exit polls are a good check and balance if fairly conducted.)

When you consider that MANY of those red counties have 6 people living there and MANY of the blue counties have a million, it becomes more clear...

I even gave Democrats Fla and Ohio and they occupy less than 35% of the US.

US Land Mass: 3,794,083.06

GOP Land Mass: 2,468,497.25
DNC Land Mass: 1,325,585.81

As of Polls right now:

GOP: 25 States controlled
DNC: 25 States controlled (gave them Fla and OH)

Pretty scary stuff that a party can control over 65% of land where they have very limited support in those states.


Now compare by population. Pretty scary stuff that Democrats outnumber Republicans in the country by nearly 20 million people but they don't have proportional voting power.

There's a reason the EC is a compromise between the two.

No kidding. Going to be really interesting what happens the next 10-20 years of more people voting on welfare, living paycheck to paycheck or no paycheck. They will just keep voting for more and more handouts. Totally not sustainable but shush...don't tell them that.


Trump isn't running on a no welfare platform, the RNC has basically abandoned that actually... aside from the TP. Which means welfare isn't an issue to vote on.

You can see the democrats live/govern in the cities (usually disasters - crime/misery/homelessness) and republicans live/govern in the nice parts of the country.

Coincidence?

Well since land doesn't vote, lets count the people instead.

If you equate urban with misery and rural as nice, then maybe. I live in a pretty rural area, it's one of the most crime infested parts of the US. How does that compute?
