Response to CincyDem (Reply #4)

12. Studies I have seen have shown that the Millenial Generation are voting MORE Democratic

as they age. It is not just the policies of the Republican Party that turn them off. They despise faux drama and outrage. The style and personality of the Republican Party turns them off.

This is not a death spiral. Combined with minority demographics it is a generational black hole. Once they are drawn into the gravitational force of the singularity they will be crushed.

But until then, (4-8 years) they will hang onto power through shaving the rules to suit their increasingly desperate needs. -Voter suppression, Gerrymandering, attempts to change how electoral votes are counted. etc., etc..-
It is because of those tactics, particularly gerrymandering after the 2010 redistricting year, that they will hold the House until 2023.

Ignore them at our collective peril. In their short time left they can really "F" this country up.
