Another take on rigging:

Same with the Senate. Giving every state two senators allows the smaller and often more conservative states to have power far beyond the number of citizens they actually represent.

Liberal California: 39,937,500 citizens 2 senators
Conservative Wyoming 577,737 citizens 2 senators

And while there are a few states with small populations that are liberal, most of them are conservative:
