In 2010 the GOP took the intentional step, a dictatorial tactic, of focusing on state legislature elections in order to produce voting district gerrymandering to insure a level of "representatio" far, far above the actual popular vote.

Which is how the GOP won control of the House in 2012.

Which is how Democrats received more than TWO MILLION MORE votes for Senate positions in the 2014 elections... and yet lost several seats!

Which is why primary Founding Father was such a strong proponent of direct elections.
