Just a quick jot here about a letter to the editor in this morning’s paper. Numbers, ya gotta love numbers. With the eternal laments about the popular vote fresh, yet again, in our ears this morning, here’s some numbers that some might really piss their pants over:
- Republicans control a record 67 state legislative chambers. That’s double the Democrats total and more than at any time in history.
- Republicans hold over 4100 of the 7383 total seats country wide.
- The GOP controls both legislative chambers in 32 states compared to just 13 for the Dems.
- In 24 of these 32 states, the GOP also have the Governorship vs. Only 6 states where the Dems control all three.
- Since BHO took office, the DEMS have lost almost 1000 seats in state legislatures.
- The GOP have 2/3 of the governorships.
Perfect! Thanks to Andrew Fine of Concord, CA for the stats.
Besides all that, Republicans have this cool, catchy nickname, The GOP. The other guys have…Dems, ho-hum.😆😇😈;)
