Redistricting in America, Part One: Gerrymandering Potency Raises the Stakes for the 2020s By Kyle Kondik
KEY POINTS FROM THIS ARTICLE
— While partisan gerrymandering is nothing new in American politics, it has become easier to find examples of states where gerrymanders are consistently effective and harder to find examples of “dummymanders” — gerrymanders that fail.
— Republicans control the drawing of more districts in this round of decennial redistricting than Democrats do.
— Democrats arguably would be better off if no states had bipartisan/independent redistricting commissions.
