There is a rigged election: It's the House of Representatives and Rethug Gerrymandering



Democrats appear headed for their biggest presidential election in years. Nate Silver has Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton as an 86 percent favorite to move back to the White House. Some polls have given her leads in reliably red states like Arizona and Georgia. Iowa and Nevada are slipping away from Republican nominee Donald Trump; Texas is tightening; Virginia is gone.

Polling averages by Silver and RealClearPolitics suggest that the Republican nominee’s fight is fading in the key battleground states of Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and North Carolina.

It takes quite a Democratic wave to tilt this many states even powder blue. But most nonpartisan analysts suggest this will not be enough to tilt the House of Representatives. The GOP holds a 30-seat majority in the House. The University of Virginia’s respected Crystal Ball says that as of today, less that three weeks from the election, only 37 competitive districts remain. Of those, 17 are toss-ups, 10 favor the Democrats and 10 lean Republican.

The rethugs will block all major policy plans by HRC, just as they did to President Obama. The Reich Wing rigged the system back in 2010.

tRumpt says the election is rigged for Hillary, huh?

How does HRC get 30 Republican Governors to rig their States for her?

Your thoughts: On November 9 does Drump concede or call for insurrection?

I think he tries to burn the country down.

His ego can't take defeat.

Drumpt lives a privileged rigged life

and now imagines the fix is in everywhere.
