Change the rules? Why the Left is slamming the Senate and Electoral College

Change the rules? Why the Left is slamming the Senate and Electoral College

The attack on the Senate stems from the 1787 compromise that is at the heart of the Constitution: House members are elected by population, which favors big states, and each state gets two Senate seats, which gives a disproportionate advantage to small states.

It can seem unbalanced on its face for states with small populations (North Dakota has 755,000 people) to have equal weight in the Senate.

But look at the flip side: California has 53 House seats, and North Dakota has one.

"If you weren't born yesterday, you might recall that as recently as 2011, the Democrats controlled the White House, 59 percent of the House, and a filibuster-proof 60 percent of the Senate.

And it's not hard to figure out why: Both Trump and George W. Bush, the last two Republican presidents, lost the popular vote while winning the White House.
