It looks like a list if under represented Americans. How many of those groups do you figure have an elected representative in congress or the senate?

Anon...ALL of them do, just as much as every other voter has. I have a very liberal representative, and 2 very liberal Senators. Do they represent my views....never. Are they still my representatives in Washington? Yes. Am I underrepresented? In some ways, yes I am, as are all those of a conservative bend throughout this state. That is the way a republic works.
