10. 11 Governors, 13 Senators, 69 Reps, 913 state seats, and 26% of the electorate

there's upsides to losing, just as there's upsides to betting against the US economy or trashing a company and taking its seed money--they're neolibs and corporate raiders

they were RELIEVED to lose the supermajority because now there'd be less pressure to pass bills that'd upset the gravy train even if the mere voters merely needed them to merely survive

so they need a stable of voters who don't pay attention, don't hold you to account, and support you no matter what--unconditional loyalty, like they need in their personal lives
