If the Florida Panhandle were reassigned to be part of Alabama and the Upper Peninsula of Wisconsin reassigned to be part of Michigan would any conservative still be arguing that the Electoral College is actually good because something something big cities? — PolitiTweet.org

@BenjySarlin I just really think it depends on what campaign tactics the candidate chooses — which media markets do you run ads in, what do they say, what do tell reporters, etc. — PolitiTweet.org

Federalism is great unless you want to: a) Secure fundamental individual rights b) Address problems that are national in scale, or c) Deal with America’s relationships with foreign countries Luckily those three things aren’t very important so we can count on federalism! — PolitiTweet.org

How unpopular was bussing in the 1970s? Well (per @KFILE) even Vermont radical Bernie Sanders opposed it and claimed that it “creates racial hostility where it did not previously exist.” https://t.co/CyDPIkcuPA https://t.co/TwsryywBNs — PolitiTweet.org

The key legal question facing SCOTUS in the Census case is do the Republican judges want to issue the decision that will help Republicans win elections by rigging the Census (yes they do) or do they not want to do that (no they don’t). — PolitiTweet.org

Working on a Beto assignment and I’m struck that despite losing the stage Hillary Clinton did better in Texas than any Democratic presidential candidate in 20 years and nobody concluded that she is a once in a generation political talent. — PolitiTweet.org

There are some things I like a lot about Warren and also I have some doubts; she seems like one of several people I could imagine being strong nominees and good presidents. Bernie Twitter’s insistence on reading any description of him as not-so-radical as a *criticism* is odd. https://t.co/tlvxl9vmfm — PolitiTweet.org

Worth saying that while it happens to be true that the five biggest cities in the US are all in very blue states (NYC, LA, Chicago) or very red ones (Dallas, Houston) this is basically just a coincidence rather than a long-term feature of the Electoral College. — PolitiTweet.org

Regarding Carlson’s claim that “our leadership class remains resolutely libertarian.” — It’s true that current public policy looks nothing that a Cato Institute white paper. — It’s also true that both parties’ leaders are more libertarian than their rank-and-file voters. — PolitiTweet.org
