Joy Behar may not be the dumbest person in America (She could have a younger brother or sister), but she is definitely in the competition. On Wednesday, Behar told her audience that gerrymandering is why the Republicans were able to keep or win Senate seats. In order to gerrymander a winning Senate seat, it would require that you change state boundaries. If you did that, map companies across America would be up in arms for making their inventory obsolete.

ABC News political analyst Matthew Dowd said was explaining how the Republicans could expand their lead in the Senate, despite getting 8 million fewer votes. What he left out was that in California, because of their jungle primary, there wasn’t a Republican on the ballot. That’s 6.3 million votes right there. It’s the same argument used in determining that Trump was illegitimate because he lost the popular vote.That part is true, but what else is true is that Trump won the popular vote in the other 49 states. His loss in popular votes was entirely due to California.

ABC News political analyst Matthew Dowd said, “There has been a battle that happened in 2016 between geography, which Republicans have. There’s more red states, there’s more red areas, and demography, which Democrats have. The fastest group of voters in the country are more Democratic, people of color, women, urban voters, suburban voters, Latinos, those are tending more Democratic. In 2016 we had a split decision. Trump takes the electoral college with geography. Hillary Clinton wins the popular vote. Last night was an even bigger example of that. So Democrats won the popular vote last night by 8 million votes. They lose U.S. Senate races in red areas—”

Behar interjected, “Because of gerrymandering.”

Dowd corrected her by saying, “Well it’s not gerrymandering, that’s the Constitution. The districts are gerrymandered, but the states are part of the Constitution.”

It’s a safe bet that Behar got The View gig based on ideology and not on intelligence.
