This is based on the quaint concept that a Senator represents everyone in their state. Not just those who voted for them.

However, if you were to go by the number of American people who voted for a pro-Gorsuch Senate candidate and compare that to the number of American people who voted for an anti-Gorsuch Senate candidate, you’d probably come up with similar results. The point being made here is that the Senators supporting a filibuster represent bigger states (and thus, more people) than the Senators supporting Gorsuch.

Like what you read? Give Victoria Lamb Hatch a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
