    Without gerrymandering, the GOP wouldn’t exist.

    the tea party think they are the establishment, but they are not. it is like thinking a respected brain doctor got his degree from stony brook, but he got it from Guadalajara in rheumatology.

    In Ohio 50% voted Democrat and 47% voted Republican. Yet 75% of our representatives in the House are Republican, because of gerrymandering.

    Wow? were to start with this stupidity. 1st Off Obama kept saying “democracy”. Why does the “constitutional scholar” keep using a word that does not mean what he says it means and does not appear in the constitution nor bill of rights?

    I don’t understand. The census (that decides congressional districts) was completely controlled by the White House under the personal direction of Rahm Emanuel. This was never done before. Now it is the Republican’s fault??

    All decent, right-thinking Americans thank the patriotic gerrymander for eating enough Democratic votes to make sure that voters can’t elect a Democratic House, no matter how many foolishly vote for Democratic Representatives.


    Now if we could just bring back the poll tax and voter ID. The poor gerrymander shouldn’t have to do ALL the work.

    Which party rails for minority voting districts? Which party wants to ensure majorities of voters to keep their people getting reelected year after year? Which party wants all identification requirements dropped for voter registeration and getting a ballot at the polls? Which party wants same day voter registration and mail in ballots?

    Gerrymandering? Try election rigging and it ain’t the TEA Party doing that…!

    Although all posters here have made good points, none of this should really be considered until our voting machines are no longer designed to be easily hacked with no ability to trace. As Mr. Stalin noted: it only matters who COUNTS the votes.

    They certainly would not control the House.

    how about a requirement the all electoral districts meet three simple requirements 1) that they have approximately the same population (exactly the same is desirable but not possible in reality) 2) that the perimeter of the district be minimized, thus eliminating some of the very creative shapes I have seen. 3) that the district be contiguous.

    Odd how you fully supported gerrymandering in 2001 when The Democrats used it to favor their candidates, it backfired on them in my state as they redrew the 7th district line in a backward ‘L’. They began at the border of the State to the North and picked up all counties down to the Border of the State to the South. Then they hung a left picking up all of the Southern Border Counties that bordered two States. They stopped in the eastern edge of the last Western County in the State. The Democrats were sure this would ensure them a Democrat for The 7th district, alas, it did not as they drew the line through the middle of t state and picked up a county that votes mainly Republican, and the eastern edge of the western most county of the State votes mainly Republican.
    Hence the 7th District of my State has been held by a Republican since the Democrats drew the crazy 7th District in 2001.
