The popular vote is a cute way of falsely claiming some kind of moral high ground.
That's not the way it works and you know it. 3 million votes in California does not represent the country as a whole, especially considering how the congressional and presidential electoral map looked.
Keep whining about that popular vote, it doesn't mean a damned thing.

Hey, be honest now ... how long have Democrats told conservatives that we need to embrace the left's agenda wholesale if we didn't want to simply die away and become irrelevant? Sorry if you don't like it, but the fact remains that while some states have really big ppopulations that are left leaning, enough to tip the scales of the popular vote, the election is an amalgamation of 50 separate state elections, and nowhere near a majority of states think like the few liberal states on the coast.

if you are so upset and hurt with the way democrats and/or liberals talk in this forum, why don't you petition the owners of ATS to banish all of them. that way we won't upset you with any criticism, and you can feel safe.

How is it that the Republicans were able to remap anything? Wouldn't that mean there weren't enough Dems to counter the Rep gerrymandering? Wouldn't that mean the Reps had control?

The Democratic party has stayed center-right (and been drifting further right) while larger liberal voting blocks (younger) have moved more to the left. Not the other way around. There is very few democratic representatives that could be called actual leftists.
The right has gotten older (in age), & drifted far further to the right (both in representatives and voters). I mean, you have to know that Reagan would be called a RINO in today's republican world.
I dunno...i remember that the members of congress weren't even given time to read the behemoth legal document before being made to vote. Remember? You have to pass it to see whats in it?
The DNC did whatever the hell they wanted, then railroaded it. Its untrue to insinuate that there was a bipartisan effort to pass ACA.
