A long-term problem for Democrats: a majority of the Senate now represents 18% of the country’s population.
And, 60% of the Senate now represents just 24% of the country’s population. This penalty for Dems is on full display in 2018:…
For all the gerrymandering in the House, it's actually the Senate that's vastly more unrepresentative. The fact it's remotely close owes to 11 red-state Dem senators - almost entirely up in 2018 - who have hung on thanks to an extraordinary combination of skill & luck.
If that red-state Dem dam breaks - and it *could* in November - we could be headed for a Senate that's largely accountable to a white, rural, pro-Trump minority of the country. At some point, the coastal/urban majority could run out of patience - threatening democratic stability.
