IDIOT: Joy Behar Says Republicans Won The Senate Because Of Gerrymandering (VIDEO)

This is a perfect reminder that many of the people who are paid to talk about politics on TV have absolutely no idea what they’re talking about. Joy Behar of the View doesn’t understand how the Senate works and she proved it on the air.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Behar Blames ‘Gerrymandering’ for GOP Senate Wins in Midterms

Joy Behar of “The View” falsely claimed Wednesday that Republicans maintained control–and even gained seats–in the Senate this election cycle because of gerrymandering, a process that impacts congressional districts.

ABC’s Matt Dowd had to reply that the Republican Party’s ability to control of the Senate while obtaining less votes in the national popular vote was not a result of gerrymandering. “That’s the Constitution,” he said.

Behar’s remark came in response to Dowd remarking that popular support for Democrats was outpacing Democratic gains. He noted President Donald Trump won the electoral college in 2010 but lost the popular vote. Likewise, Democrats received 8 million more votes than Republicans between the various Senate races last night, but still lost seats.

While Behar blamed a Democratic minority on gerrymandering, the process has nothing to do with the election or distribution of senators. Gerrymandering is the manner in which congressional districts are drawn to favor one political party or candidate. Senators are elected at the state level, so state lines determine electors, not congressional districts.

This is actually becoming a new talking point on the left.
