Democrats won the popular vote in this year’s presidential election yet
again, marking seven out of eight straight presidential elections that the
party has reached that milestone.

And, for some Democrats, that’s worrisome.

President-elect Joe Biden has so far won 50.8% of the vote compared to the
47.4% who voted for President Donald Trump, a 5 million vote advantage
that is likely to grow as Democratic bastions like California and New York
continue to count ballots. Biden’s 77.5 million votes to date are the most
for any winning candidate, and Trump’s 72.3 million also set a high water
mark for a losing one.

Experts predict Biden’s margin of victory will surpass former President
Barack Obama’s 4 percentage point popular vote lead in 2012. Only Obama’s
landslide 2008 victory — with a 7 percentage point margin in the popular
vote — was larger in recent elections.

But what alarms many Democrats is a growing gap between their popular vote
tallies and their political power. Democrats may be winning over more
supporters, but as long as those votes are clustered on the coasts or in
cities and suburbs, they won’t deliver the congressional victories the
party needs to enact its policies.

That power gap is especially clear this year. While Biden was racking up
those historic margins, Democrats lost at least eight seats in the House
of Representatives and failed to gain a single statehouse — in fact, they
lost control of New Hampshire’s legislature. They also fell short of
taking back control of the U.S. Senate, with their hopes now resting on
winning two run-off elections in Georgia that are considered an uphill
climb for the party.

“There’s a massive structural challenge to the majority of Americans
having any political power anytime soon,” said Rebecca Katz, a liberal
Democratic strategist. “It’s a problem.”

Whether it’s a problem — or a necessary check on power — is a point of
debate. The founders created a U.S. system of government based partially
on geography. Wyoming, with its population of 500,000, has as many
senators as California, home to 39 million people. House seats are awarded
based on population, but districts can be drawn to dilute the impact of
types of voters. The presidency is a won by amassing a majority of
electors allocated to states.

“Power is not allocated by the popular vote,” said Simon Rosenberg, a
veteran Democratic strategist. “What we have to get better at is not just
winning more votes, but winning in more parts of each state, and in more
states.”

The disparity has only been growing as the country gets more polarized.
When George W. Bush won the White House in 2000 through an Electoral
College win despite losing the popular vote, it was seen as a fluke.

Full Coverage: Election 2020
Bush won reelection in 2004 with 50.7% of the national vote. But Democrats
have won it every presidential election since, including in 2016, when
Democrat Hillary Clinton won 2.9 million more votes but lost the White
House to Trump because she narrowly lost critical swing states and did not
win a majority of electors.

The Trump-era polarization has accelerated the divide. Trump has performed
well with white voters, specifically white voters who have not graduated
from a four-year college — a group that is fairly evenly distributed
throughout the 50 states. Democrats, meanwhile, have gained ground with
college graduates, who are more likely to cluster in cities, and in states
like Massachusetts and Colorado.

Another bulwark for the Democratic coalition, Black, Latino and other
racial minority voters, are likewise clustered in cities and certain
states, and less represented in a broad swath of rural states that help
give Republicans their geographic edge.

The results in the 2018 midterm was especially clear: Democrats lost
ground in the Senate even as they netted 41 seats to win control of the
House of Representatives.

It’s easy to see how the dynamic plays out in campaigns. Trump repeatedly
slammed Democratic states like California and New York and Democratic-
controlled cities during his presidency and reelection campaign. Biden,
who couldn’t win just by appealing to places where his party was strong,
argued the country needed to unify and stop fighting.

The increasing gap between the majority and those actually in power
troubles even those benefiting from it.

“Republicans can be glib about this because it’s working for them, but I
don’t think it’s a good long-term solution,” said Liam Donovan, a
Washington, D.C.,-based GOP strategist. “For the long-term health of the
party and of the country, you have to hope you’re not just winning barely
with a diminishing rump.”

Still, Republicans’ strong performance in state legislatures makes it
likely they can lock in gains during the upcoming once-a-decade
gerrymandering, by drawing lines for statehouse and congressional
districts that pack voters into districts that favor the GOP. The party’s
landslide 2010 win during Obama’s first midterm helped them do that over
the past decade.

“They’ll be able to cement this for a new decade,” Donovan said. “They’re
figuring out new ways of consolidating power with the minority of the
electorate.”

Donald J. Trump, cheated out of a second term by fraudulent "mail-in"
ballots.

Thank you for cleaning up the disaster of the Obama / Biden fiasco,
President Trump.

Under Barack Obama's leadership, the United States of America became the
The World According To Garp. Obama sold out heterosexuals for Hollywood
queer liberal democrat donors.

President Trump boosted the economy, reduced illegal invasions, appointed
dozens of judges and three SCOTUS justices.

Democrats won the popular vote in this year’s presidential election yet

That's a symptom of heavy election fraud within the Democrats own
districts where they run everything... they steal "down ballot" votes
for Democrats and have to fill in the top of the ticket or they'd be
creating with a pattern that would betray their FRAUD.

So it's purely a case of Democrats fraud. There truly aren't that many
LEFTIST MARXIST TYPES... We can look at the fact that extra votes after
the electoral college votes are already secured are superfluous. While
DEMOCRAT STUPIDITY is infinite the survival rate of humans suggests that
stupid isn't distributed that widely over a MAJORITY, if it were then
we'd see more deaths by stupidity than by all other causes combined.
And we know Democrats are infinitely STUPID, so they are either cheating
or statistically they're defying the odds.

While Stupid is infinite it's also limited to a number that is far fewer
than the total of real and FAKE MARXIST-DEMOCRATS, since we know that
all MARXIST-DEMOCRATS are infinitely stupid. The death rate of death by
stupidity doesn't allow for more DEMOCRATS than OTHERS.

Simple logic suggests that there would be fewer Democrats alive at any
moment in time due to their being infinitely stupid. The numbers are in
conflict.

*Liberalism is unsustainable, self destructive and contradicting*
