Republicans have won the national popular vote for president just once in the last 30 years.

Similarly, Republican senators have only represented a majority of the American population for one Congress in the last 30 years.

At no time in the last 30 years, have Republicans Senators representing a majority of the American population served alongside a president who won the national popular vote.

You think we’d still have an Electoral College if that had happened to Republicans?

Well if we didn't have the Electoral College and instead decided the presidency by popular vote then Congress would have decided the elections in 1992, 1996, 2000, and 2016 because no candidate had a majority. Republicans controlled the Senate in 1996, 2000, and 2016...

And they probably wouldn’t have had a Bush win in ’04 if they hadn’t managed to pull off what they did in ’00.

That's because they're better at gaming the system than Dems. The system helps them overcome their national popular vote weakness, sure, but it's not just that.

Other than Trump-era shenanigans, what do you have in mind?
