Thanks to demographics, the Republicans have a virtual stranglehold on the House of Representatives.
"If Democratic losses in that part of the country <the South> are irreversible, Democrats might be forced to wait for demographic and generational change to spread beyond urban centers and suburbs, giving the party a chance to build a more decisive majority. Until that happens, the long-anticipated Democratic majority has little chance of enacting the most ambitious elements of its agenda." – Nate Cohen
Rural Americans who are outside the 2% seem to insist on voting for Republicans and against their own self-interests. When they come to their senses and stop doing that, this country will progress and improve.
