The Disenfranchised Majority

The California Literary Review has an article that analyzes why Presidential politics in the US is biased - probably permanently so - toward the Republican party. Mann goes into quite a bit of detail as to the why of the current arrangement; in an unposted draft of a LJ entry from some time after the 2000 election, I'd started to go into the detailed mechanics of the arrangement - the how of the Republican advantage - and was waiting for an opportunity to massage census data to finish up the entry.  I'm still "waiting".Someday, you'll see my analysis here - if I'm lucky, it'll be in the run-up to the 2008 election.

Edit: corrected the URL
