Huder thread. Trump is a nasty aberration, yes, but he’s only part of a bigger trend. This country is really divided, electorally*, and this only part of a bigger battle.

*”Electorally”: We really need to fix our election systems with National Popular Vote, re-apportioning the House, and scaling back gerrymandering with independent redistricting commissions and efficiency-gap measurements. On a person-by-person level (popular vote), we’re less divided.

Josh Huder (@joshHuder) Tweeted:
If that’s the case, 2020 is a totally different animal. Republicans might be looking at historic majorities in both chambers as Democrats eyed a very tough “4th term” reelection effort as President Clinton battles investigations on all fronts and congressional super majorities.
