    An assault on American democracy is underway

    In the case of Massachusetts, I'm not sure there would be way to draw that map such that you could get a Republican elected to the House. Democratic canidates got at least 60% in almost every race. Trying to find a breakdown by county but its hard info to come by Ironically Massachusetts just re-elected a Republican Governor (Charlie Baker), who even had more votes than Elizabeth Warren. In Virginia's case though, when you totalled up all the votes it was clear that Democrats should have had more seats. On top of that, you had Democrats winning all the recent state-wide races (Governor, Senator, President) yet the House remained tilted to the Republican side.

    Really it determines who gets that crop report so they can get rich on trading options of Frozen Concentrated Orange Juice.

    Only 1/3 of the Senate was up for election and it heavily favored Republicans. The 2020 map looks a bit more favorable, with 21 Republicans having to defend vs 12 Democrats. https://www.rollcall.com/news/gonzales/its-not-too-early-to-start-looking-at-the-2020-senate-map Of course, I wouldn't expect Doug Jones to retain his seat in Alabama, as it took an almost Herculean effort in order for the Republican to lose. But who knows, Republicans may shoot themselves in the foot in the primaries again. 🙂 There are alot more opportunities for Democrats to pickup seats and not many places where they will have to play defense.

    Election 2020 Thread

    Assuming the 2020 electoral map is the same, they would just need to win back Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, and all the states that Clinton won in 2016. That puts them at 273. They wouldn't even need Ohio or Florida. Obama won those three in 2008 and 2012. Going with a candidate from the rust belt might be the best move, but offhand can't think of anyone who would make a good national candidate.

    Voted on my lunch hour in San Jose. Polling place was a back dining area of Denny's. No wait. Paper ballot. Hoorah for low tech in Silicon Valley !

    Hell no. You would never convince me it can't be hacked. Also, it compromises the idea of a secret ballot. I say we go the other way. Get rid of the electronics. There's nothing wrong with good old paper and pen.

    Post-Curse D.C. Sports Thread

    Curse is for championships, not regular season. Caps appeared the playoffs regularly for 10 years but couldn't get past the second round. Were still considered cursed.

    I'd take the 1962 Giants roster who also had Mays McCovey Cepeda and Marichal. Plus they actually advanced to the WS that year. Snider wasn't really any good anymore in his last few years.

    Or not ... Maybe they could start pulling people out of the stands... I'm wondering if this game will spark a serious consideration for having the DH in both leagues.

    2018 MLB Thread

    According to mlb.com Boston has only Pomeranz left in the bullpen, and no bench players (but neither does LA) Eovaldi is at 70 pitches now ... dodgers probably win either here or in the 17th ...

    2018 MLB Thread

    I'm starting to get a little annoyed at Machado. Its a one-run game in the freakin' World Series, and you're still hot dogging it? Because they would put the winning run on base. A double by Barnes would probably win the game.
