Agreed. The system may be borked, but it isn't totally borked. The problem isn't that DJT got a 2% boost from a vestigial gimmick, but that he got a 46% boost from voters who, if not haters themselves, fell for the lies of haters and kleptocrats.

The Senate isn't being abolished anytime soon. Nevertheless we should continue to fight gerrymandering in all its forms when we can. The plans to cheat on the 2020 Census need to be pushed against, even if that requires organized counter-cheating.
