Is the U.S. Senate anti-democratic?
Yes. Of the 100 members of the new U.S. Senate, the 46 Dems received 67.8 million votes, and the 54 Reps 47.1 million votes. (For those who think this is a partisan statement, it is not, the reverse was true in 2008 and 2012). What does it show? The Senate favors small states. Less than 600,000 people live in Wyoming. Almost 39 million people live in California. Both states get two senators
