Jim_Callahan: Um... not to rain on the dude's parade, but until the early 1900s the electoral college was appointed, for the most part, by the congresses, the methods only gradually shifted the the popular vote and winner-take-all method for the states gradually over the better part of a century.So... no, mostly wouldn't have looked like that at all, it would have looked precisely like a map of congressional majorities (or, in some states, governorships, or in some states district-by-district). This argument is retarded as presented.Its implication is also retarded, as the actual lead of GOP candidates among white males isn't actually as huge as presented, they're exaggerating it by magnifying it with an arbitrarily selected interpretation of how the EC works.It's like someone showed Nate Silver's maps to a three-year-old, told them that that was good and they should do that, and they (being three years old) responded on the assumption that the important part was having a shiny blue and red map, not the "actually knowing something about math and history" bit.
DamnYankees: I heard there's some map bouncing around right wing websites showing the results only if people who paid federal income tax voted. Anyone know about this?
thamike: So can we all agree that Conservatives are regressive?
