Gerrymandering is baked in at the national level. Instead of carving up House districts in ways that will favor one party of the other, we have smaller states, where Republicans dominate, able to outnumber the more populous ones, which generally favor Dems. In the Senate the two Dakotas and their 1.4 million citizens account for twice as many Senators as California's 36 million.

A party can control the Senate, the nation's highest legislative body, with states representing about 30% of the electorate, if they're the right states. I'm not cool with this at all but the people of this country mostly seem to be.
