Half the US population will live in 8 states

That’s the subject of a thought-provoking Washington Post article, “In about 20 years, half the population will live in eight states,” and 70% of Americans will live in 15 states. “Meaning 30 percent will choose 70 senators. And the 30% will be older, whiter, more rural, more male than the 70 percent.” Of course, as the census shows the population shifting, the makeup of the House will also change dramatically.

Maybe you think that’s good, maybe you think that’s bad. It certainly leads to interesting political times. Maybe even a bit of chaos, emerging.

  1. Oh no! Those darn dangerous rural white males!
    Let’s try some small changes…

    “Meaning 70 percent will choose 30 senators. And the 70% will be younger, Majority minority (wtf does that mean), more urban, more male than the 30 percent.”

    Race baiting has gotten you trump, and you think more race baiting, however mild is going to help?

    Good luck guy

    1. Thanks! It’s nice to see you add words like “Majority minority (wtf does that mean)” and “race baiting.”
