I wonder how long it's going to be before someone comes out and complains overtly about the electoral coalition of "everybody not white and male" being inherently numerically unfair.

I take it you didn't pay attention to the 2016 Democratic primaries.

Not especially, no.

I got a whole lot of "women shouldn't be in politics" off that but failed to notice any numerical whinging.

One of the main complaints by the more vocal members of the BernieBro contingent was that it was totally unfair that southern states like Louisiana should have so many delegates compared to states like Vermont, New Hampshire and Iowa.

Guess who makes up a large portion of Democratic voters in the states they were whining about?

Louisiana has about the same population as Vermont, New Hampshire, and Iowa put together, doesn't it? (I have the vague sense delegates are proportional to population, or at least party membership, for which population might be a reasonable proxy.)

But yeah. The BernieBros are pretty obvious the patriarchal white supremacists who want more state support.
