The right wing Republicans outsmarted Democrats. Starting in 2008, they understood the path to grabbing and holding power goes through state legislatures. They could see that their white older male base is eroding and that they don’t need to compete fairly when they control redistricting. On this show David Daley, author of the bestselling Ratfucked: The True Story behind the Secret Plan to Steal America’s Democracy, discusses how we got here and how we can once again level the playing field. His new book is Unrigged: How Americans Are Battling Back to Save Democracy. Daley says while Democrats tend to seek out a savior, Republicans do it differently. The hopeful news is that Americans don’t like cheating. We can make voter preference rule again.
