25. Unfortunately, that isn't so. We have a state-by-state winner-take-all Electoral College system

that has all but made voting in GOP Red states irrelevant to outcome of Presidential elections. If we choose a bad Democratic candidate, one that demobilizes the progressive base and intensely alienates Independents, we are going to lose the General, no matter what her Democratic supporters do.
