That's an interesting point. One party's path to 270 includes California and New York. The other one has Texas and maybe we can swing Florida. That means the Republicans have to pick up a lot of smaller states. So you end up with one party getting 3 million more votes and the other one having way more state houses.

There is a value in being able to craft an opposing argument. I don't know why Jaybird does it, but I can't be mad at him for it. I like this site because it helps me keep my thoughts honest.

I think that you and Chip make very bad arguments in good faith. Maybe some bad faith slips in, but it's not my place to speculate on that.

I'm not confident about diagnosing that Trump clip, though, either way.
