2022 #Midterms Simulation: #ArtoftheGerrymander

A Republican House win will be built on gerrymanders (TX/GA/FL/TN/LA, etc.)

To illustrate the need for fair maps, I'm calculating the results using the 2022 votes, but if every state had a Democratic gerrymander. #ElectionTwitter ImageImageImageImage
Methodology:

I’ll apply the difference in Presidential margin to the House result. Thanks @davesredist @mikemathieu @vest_team + @DKElections @PoliticsWolf

Keen to see how my maps perform over the decade; tried to comply with state law if partisan intent were allowed to stand.
#ArtoftheGerrymander: #Alabama
Trump 62.0% - Biden 36.6%
Real delegation: 6R-1D
Gerrymandered: 5R-2D
Δ Share of D seats: 14% => 28%
Easy Democratic pick-up of a safe new African American seat.

Capisco che ci avevano avvisati, ma noi malati di politica abbiamo un difetto: vogliamo sempre sapere come andrà a finire. In questo caso parliamo di #Midterms2022. E lo facciamo volutamente, pur sapendo che in queste ore tra Italia e Francia monta un poco edificante caso Image

quella vera, quella che - piaccia o no ai complottisti trumpiani che da un paio di giorni (o di anni?) mi chiedono di parlare di fantomatici brogli - ha vissuto un momento importantissimo con il voto di #midterm.

🚨🇺🇸Aggiornamento #Midterms2022.

La partita è davvero avvincente. Non ci credete? Guardate questa grafica.
Quando negli USA è quasi l'alba ancora non è chiaro chi guiderà il Congresso. Devo tenermi sul vago. Sì, perché il discorso vale sia per il #Senato che per la #Camera.

Partiamo dal Senato. Quello che ripetono i networks USA è il seguente messaggio: sarà lunga.
In #Georgia, uno degli Stati chiave per il controllo del Senato, la situazione è la seguente:

difficilmente andrà oltre il 49,5%. Dunque sarà sotto la soglia del 50% che serve a conquistare il seggio. Se così fosse prepariamoci ad un ballottaggio thrilling il prossimo 6 dicembre con il Repubblicano Walker.

Se l'incertezza è il fattore dominante dell'anno, allora le #Midterms2022 non potevano fare eccezione. La politica #Usa si ferma per guardarsi allo specchio, per scattare una foto al giro di boa della grande corsa che condurrà tra due anni (sì, solo 2) alle presidenziali.

🇺🇸 Cosa c'è in palio?
La risposta corretta è la seguente: il rinnovo di 435 deputati alla Camera e di 35 seggi al Senato. E poi 36 poltrone da governatore dello Stato, per non parlare delle centinaia di referendum statali e delle migliaia di cittadine chiamate ad indicare il

I candidati repubblicani negli Stati chiave cercano sempre di più di bloccare i voti via posta espressi dai democratici, che accusano: si tratta di tentativi di impedire il voto dei gruppi più svantaggiati. Thread a seguire 🧵⤵️
In #Pennsylvania, la Corte Suprema statale ha dato ragione al Comitato Nazionale Repubblicano sul fatto che i funzionari elettorali non devono contare le schede su cui l'elettore ha trascurato di apporre la data sulla busta esterna.
In particolare anche nei casi in cui le schede sono arrivate prima del giorno delle elezioni e quindi altrimenti sarebbero pienamente legittime. Di conseguenza, migliaia di schede votare via posta sono state accantonate, tanto da poter cambiare il risultato in una sfida serrata.

Hey! I betcha you didn’t know this about Wisconsin.

We helped create the idea for Social Security AND put it into place as the FIRST SOCIAL SECURITY ACT in 1935.

I received an email yesterday from an attorney, demanding I remove Tweets in which I noted that Sherrilyn Fisher, wife of @KennethLFisher, is the largest individual donor to Republicans, $2.8 million according to @OpenSecretsDC. opensecrets.org/elections-over…
I deleted my previous Tweets to clarify Sherrilyn Fisher's $2.8 mil donation to Republicans.

"neither Ken nor Sherri Fisher has ever made any donation - whether directly or through any entity, whether of funds or anything of value - to Doug Mastriano or any campaign of his..."
Lucas Kunce is running for U.S. Senator from Missouri.

I have asked the Fishers' attorney whether any of Sherrilyn Fisher's reported $2.8 donations to Republicans went to Republicans who turned their backs on veterans who were exposed to toxic burn pits.

Eté 2022: Donald #Trump continue à harceler le président républicain de la Chambre du Wisconsin, Vos pour qu'il fasse invalider le résultat de la présidentielle de novembre 2020 dans cet Etat. Quelqu'un de célèbre aurait parlé de "coup d'Etat permanent"...washingtonpost.com/national-secur…
...on arrive ainsi à 1 situation inédite en démocratie. 1 ex-président (#Trump), qui a inspiré 1 coup de force factieux contre le Congrès le 6/01/2021 mais s'en tire sans aucune sanction, prépare son retour au pouvoir par les urnes, en niant toujours leur précédent résultat.2/
On peut toujours penser et arguer que #Trump ne sera pas investi par le parti républicain en 2024- mais l'historique de soumission depuis 2015 et les résultats des primaires 2022 amènent à 1 jugement bien plus nuancé- mais 1 question se pose d'ores et déjà...3/

THREAD: So if you love #fishing and your water, something to consider. I have bald eagles, trumpeter swans, pelicans, herons here on the Lower #Wisconsin #River. Lead kills #birds. I lose probably more than my share of jigs and hanging with the @riveralliancewi got me thinking.
I am more pragmatist than activist, but #environmentalism hits home as you watch eagles soar as you fish pristine, delicate waterways. The 92 miles LWR is mostly in conservancy, and is recognized as a @RamsarConv Wetlands of International Importance. rsis.ramsar.org/ris/2417
So I cultivated a local guy who makes lures out of his garage. Very skilled fisherman too and I have learned a lot from him out on the water. Had him cast me this initial run of jigs out of tin bismuth alloy.

So it appears as if the #B1G may hold off on further expansion until atleast 2024 (why 2024?, ND/NBC contract expires in April 2025 & the BigTen won't make a move w/out a definitive answer from the Irish). Let's take a look at what Pods may look like from the new 16 team B1G.🧵
Pod 1
USC
UCLA
Northwestern
Illinois

Travel is going to be a nightmare for USC/UCLA. The #B1G would be wise to try and ease that as much as possible. The easiest/closest travel from LA would be to Chicago hence Northwestern. Illinois comes along as NW's biggest rival.
Pod 2
Nebraska
Iowa
Minnesota
Wisconsin

This Pod is fairly self explanatory. Preservation of the historic Iowa/Minnesota/Wisconsin rivalries is obtained and the new additional rivalries w/ Nebraska are nurtured. #B1G shouldn't spilt these four.

A birthday thread:

So this is me at 50.  
I feel like 35, but with 15 years of experience.
I have seen a lot these past few years, good and bad. 
Maybe this old man can share a little bit of what I have learned:
Be humble and gracious. None of us have done anything on our own. We are who we are because of the people around us. Acknowledge them. Thank them. Saying thanks goes a long way
Be respectful. This world is full of people with opinions different from yours. Their experiences are different from yours. Listen to their story. You will probably find that your thoughts aren't all that different. Make friends, not enemies.

1. New county-level #risk indicators released by @CDCgov last night.

Here's your look at weekly #transmission levels since Feb 24.

After looking much better in March, we're continuing to see rates of newly reported cases increasing in most US regions.
2. But, as has been the case for a while, when basing risk level on #hospitalization rates and hospital capacity, at least visually, the story is very different.
3. This shows CHANGE in each metric yesterday compared to 1 week prior. Many more places worsening than improving.

14% of the population worsened on the hospital-based measure; only 1% improved.

23% of the population worsened on the transmission-based measure; only 6% improved.

So some interesting things have surfaced in the last few weeks that I want to share. Be patient with me, I’m slow & get interrupted a lot. But, I think it’s worth it to share this information before the mid-term elections.

😃 Please don’t forget to vote in November…💙
This article from 04/06/2022 has been weighing on my mind…it’s regarding the #RockbridgeNetwork, defined as a coalition.

What is a “political coalition” in the US?
Not much. It’s basically a verbal, non-regulated agreement to finance an agreed upon political agenda.
While #RockbridgeNetwork is being considered a “new GOP coalition”, it isn’t, think #CambridgeAnalytica. Plus, it is not the only “new GOP coalition” popping up before mid-term elections. #ChestnutStreetCouncil has been started by Matt Schlapp, think #KochNetwork

Ready for the #CFB Analytics Spring Top 40? Here we go. This Power Ranking is derived from a model which utilizes full Coach Staff efficiency metrics, roster talent, & returning production among other metrics. No opinion here, I just regurgitate the numbers. #NoOpinionJustNumbers
40 #Kentucky #BBN #SEC Power Rating: 61.726
Returning Production for the Wildcats may be a problem. At 39.72%, it puts them at 113th in the country. The schedule is manageable tho drawing Ole Miss & Miss State out the West. #CFB
39 #Washington #PurpleReign #Pac12
Power Rating: 62.271
Really like the new coaching staff in Seattle. Should put them in a better position to win. Roster talent purge from the prev regime will have an early effect (last 2 classes were 39th, 86th) but the ship has been righted.

El #Chichon el gigante dormido del norte de #Chiapas. 🇲🇽

40 años de la mayor erupción volcánica del México contemporáneo. #Hilo 👇🧵
Durante más de 500 años el Chichón estuvo dormido, con episodios recurrentes de sismos locales y fumarolas que se reportaron por primera vez en la década de los 30s del siglo XX.

Domo de lava que obstruía la salida de gases en el cráter del #Chichon antes de la erupción. 1980
Desde finales de 1979 geologos y geofisicos de la #CFE detectaron pequeños sismos bajo el volcán, gracias a la instalación de sismógrafos en presa La Angostura que estaban monitoreando el comportamiento del embalse.
