The disparity between electoral votes and popular vote is due to manipulation of congressional district boundaries by both parties. The dems have been
more successfull at it but both sides do it. It really isn't right but it is "legal"
Yep, it is called Gerrymandering. They did that to my District years ago, and now I am in a District where the other half of it is 20 miles away on
the other side of the County. Not to mention that the other half of the District has nowhere near the same Ethnic/Racial make-up, it is mostly all
Hispanic, whereas my area is mostly Black/White. I hate my current Congressman, and I heavily supported his opponent, but I fear he may have lost.
As a matter of fact, My Congressman was on the Radio today, someone recorded him angrily saying: "This crisis is due to the Republicans narrow
mindedness, in their belief that you have a right to keep your wealth without sharing it". If that audio had made an appearance One or Two Weeks ago,
the incumbent would have most likely lost.
