    Rush Limbaugh believes that Democrats aren’t as popular as they might seem, so why they keep holding power struck him as confusing. But in reaction to a report about possible voter fraud in Cook County, Limbaugh suspected that––voter fraud––must be a big reason for them continuing to win.

    Limbaugh cited polls, as well as less-than-impressive book sales for Hillary Clinton and Andrew Cuomo‘s recent books, to say Democrats aren’t as popular as the media might build them up to be. Of the left in general, Limbaugh said, “They don’t have any audience on their cable news shows. They’re not these rock star, popular, admirable figures that people run around emulating and wish they were like.”

    Democrats are the only reason Limbaugh stays in power.

    Gerrymandering is what keeps the GOP in control of the House of Representatives.

    After a generation of democrats doing the same thing. Both parties do it. They consider it a benefit of carrying statewide elections.

    But it's only done every 10 years, after the census comes out. So the statewide election that really counts for redistricting is the 2010, 2020, 2030, etc. elections. Whoever wins the majority in statewide elections gets to redraw the state maps. And yes, it's only been recently that Republicans have been able to do it (for the most part.)

    You expect Rush to say anything negative about the GOP or the Southern Policy?
