The Vox piece below contains a number of graphs worth noting. The one displayed shows the number of Democratic votes it took to elect a House member for each Republican vote required. What this shows is that some states are very good at grouping Democrats into congressional districts so that in those districts most voters are Democratic whereas in the districts in which Republicans win the Republican wins by a smaller margin. This, of course, is grossly undemocratic  at the national level in that the House has far more Republicans than there are Republican voters. On the other hand, this is a somewhat dangerous game for Republicans. It means that a smaller change in middle voters will move a district from Republican to Democratic.

Many of the other charts are also worth looking at.
These charts should worry both Republicans and Democrats.

OK, the Republican party has become corrupt beyond the wildest dreams, but the Democrats have always been too weak (afraid) to put a good fight, even now the only Democrat fighting for the working people is Elizabeth Warren while even Obama is afraid to use his pen...
