. “Washington media are burying the lede,” he argues, referring to the beginning of a news story.
“Let's put aside the electoral implications of the census data release and look at the bigger picture.

"Liberals should stop worrying about the Electoral College and instead focus on why their policies are chasing Americans away from the places they govern.”
