So with Segwit, the useable block size essentially doubles to about 2mb… does this mean double the transactions get included in each block? Meaning that miners collect double the fees per block? Which means fees should come down, but miners should still get the same fee revenue they are making now?

By this logic, miners should be more supportive of Segwit. Maybe miners would be able to make even more in fees per block. Please tell me if I am missing something.

Edit: Also I wonder if a large block size means more incentives for miners, which means better decentralization due to lower barriers of entry? I wonder if there is an optimal block size that balances incentives with decentralization.
