  •  That's not a large enough margin to overcome (1+ / 0-)

    a really strong gerrymandering.  Really.  It's not.  It's still close enough.

    •  It could be strong enough down to 25%+50 support (0+ / 0-)

      Well, theoretically at least that's enough for a majority of majorities (with even turnout in each district, that is).

      My point though was simply that it seems ridiculous that we have to describe a 6% deficit in the popular vote as "close enough" for a majority.

      Fake candidates nominated by the GOP for the recalls: 6 out of 7. Fake signatures on the recall petitions: 4 out of 1,860,283.
