Like we reported, the problem seems to have started with Vox’s Ezra Klein complaining about something he called the “House popular vote,” and from there it grew into a nationwide myth about the “Senate popular vote” once the Election Day numbers were in and the big blue wave didn’t materialize, certainly not in the Senate.

“The overall popular vote for the Senate.”

We can’t even count the number of people who are passing around these numbers on Twitter and other social media, but it’s something special when a political science professor at the University of Wisconsin – Madison is pushing the concept of the Senate popular vote.

The math’s right there, people: Vox is right; time to scrap both the Electoral College and the Senate and maybe just the whole Consitution while we’re at it.
