The Supreme Court needs to uphold the Republican voters who are challenging Democratic gerrymandering in Maryland. Gerrymandering is wrong no matter which party does it.

Gerrymandering sucks!

It would be much better if the boundaries of voting districts were generated by some algorithm that completely ignored party affiliation and voting history.

That would be refreshing. Democrats have been fiddling with congressional districts for decades.

@Budwick That would be refreshing. Democrats have been fiddling with congressional districts for decades.

I think you would agree that gerrymandering is wrong, regardless of who benefits. However, I think your comment accusing the Democrats alone is misleading.

The House of Representatives is not so representative.

As the chart below shows, the total vote differential between the two parties for elections to the House in 2016 was 1.2 percent. But the difference in the number of seats is 10.8 percent, giving a total of 21 extra seats to Republicans.
