American progressives: get your rural act together NOW for 2018!

2018 projections for Repub vs Dems is even MORE republicans in your congress ... do you want that?

Why is Democratic control of the House so unlikely, even in the case of a major wave year for Democrats?

Democratic voters are mostly situated in large cities with small geographic footprints.
