The American Electorate
And Its Representation In The U.S. Senate
3.15% of the U.S. population controls 20.00% of the U.S. Senate.
This means that each resident of the 10 least populist states has approximately seven (7) times as much voting power in theU.S. Senate as a statistically representative American.
This lone resident of Idaho, Hawaii, New Hampshire, Maine, Rhode Island, Montana, Delaware, South Dakota, North Dakota, Alaska, Vermont and Wyoming has as much representative power in the United States Senate as seven (7) of YOU.
Hugely disproportionate power also translates to The Electoral College: for example, Hillary Clinton recieved 3.55% more popular votes than Trump... but lost the 2016 presidential election.
