I remarked that If you’re havin’ electoral problems I feel bad for you son, I got 538 problems but partisan bias ain’t one, and it got such a strong reaction it caused me to rethink my entire approach to political blogging, so I followed up with, What we’ve got here is failure to communicate.

In other news, Paul “I’m not Galbraith” disses Larry “I’m not Krugman” Summers and we ask, What is the middle class?

    Are there any good studies for the potential for voting skew/suppression in various states, for combinations of:
    1) CD-gerrymandering, i.e., by whoever is in control when redistricting done.
    2) Stricter ID-requirements, by whoever can get them passed.
    3) Careful precinct setups to create long lines and voting difficulty in selected precincts, byt whoever is in charge at time of election.

    Put another way, with a menu of these, how low a fraction of actual votes can be used to win a majority of electoral votes (or all, if only 2) and 3) are used?

    VA seems to be trying.
