This is a big reason America is so messed up and I don't think they will ever be able to change it.
In 2020 the Senate was split evenly 50/50, but 42 million more Americans voted for a Democrat for senator.
There is also the election of the POTUS and the electoral college advantage. Biden landed 306 EC votes in 2020 by beating Trump by 7 million votes and Trump won the exact same number of EC votes in 2016 by losing to Hillary by 3 million votes.
There is gerrymandering in Congress. I have no idea how many extra seats the GOP picks up from they clearly have an advantage.
Lastly, since the GOP has all the other advantages it gives them more judges including 6 of 9 supreme court justices even though they haven't won the popular presidential vote in 18 years.
And after all these structural advantages they still cheat.
