“What Democrats Really Need is a Massive Resettlement Program.”

I believe they call that amnesty.

Today I chatted with David Wasserman, who closely tracks House districts for the Cook Political Report.

Wasserman recently wrote that due to population shifts and redistricting that have resulted in huge concentrations of Democratic votes in Dem districts — wasting a lot of those votes — Democrats can now expect that the percentage of seats they win will consistently trail their victory in the overall popular vote by about four percentage points.

Even if Democrats were to get something approaching neutral maps in these big states, Wasserman estimates, it could result in just a couple more seats in each state — adding up to a total of maybe 10 additional House seats for Democrats. That would obviously help, but it would still be short of the 30-seat edge Republicans currently hold.

Democrats would still have to post pretty big victories in the next few cycles to get close to the majority. In short, beyond the problem of redistricting is the even more serious problem (for Democrats) of population distribution.

“If Democrats were to get neutral maps drawn by God in all 50 states, they would still fall well short of winning back the House,” Wasserman concludes. “What Democrats really need is a massive resettlement program.”

If only there were some sort of program that could “resettle” likely Democratic voters in America. Say a refugee program. And maybe tie that in with open borders and assorted incentives and it looks a whole lot like a resettlement program.

And now you know the rest of the story.
