This past midterm election the Democrat Senatorial candidates received seven-million more votes than the Republicans, but the Republicans hold the Senate.  

The Constitution of the United States has Gerrymandered the elections of Senators.   Every state in the U.S. gets two Senators.   North Dakota with one-half million population gets the same number of Senators as California that has 39 million population;

½ Million = 2 Senators
39 Million = 2 Senators.

There are more Red States than Blue States and with the Cult following of the party of Donald Trump, the Senate will for the future likely remain in the hands of the Republicans.

With the Senate in Republican control the chance of impeachment of Donald Trump, regardless of his crimes and misdemeanors, is zero.  The Republican Senate is still in control of appointments of judges, including for the Supreme Court, and the confirmation of any Trump appointments.

It seems we are now down to two branches of government: the Congress and the Executive-Judicial

Reality sux

  1. You're too pessimistic. The fact that some states are red now doesn't mean they'll be that way forever. Arizona was considered deeply red, a thoroughly entrenched seemingly permanently Republican state, and the last I heard the Democratic candidate for Senate was winning. Mississippi has to have a run off election because the Republican there wasn't able to get the required more than 50 percent of the vote -- a few years ago it would have been a walk-away for the Republican. Yes, it's true that the crazier Cheetolini acts the more his hard core supporters love him, but their numbers are shrinking.

    As for the two senators per state, is it really gerrymandering when it's part of the Constitution?

  2. least your state got a shiny new, blue governor -- Congratulations! We were not so lucky in TN.
