The Incredibly Shrinking Democrats

One of the standard assumptions of political punditry is that the 2016 presidential election is the Democratic Party’s race to lose. There is some truth to this thesis since any objective reading of the Electoral College math shows that the Democrats have a near built-in majority with a large number of deep blue states like New York and California (the biggest prize of them all) that Republicans have virtually no chance to win. Since the deep red states that are equally uncompetitive don’t pack the same clout, the GOP has to sweep the swing states in order to win the White House. This has bred some triumphalism in Democrats as well as a faith in some of the liberal media that conservatives are doomed.
