    That is of course after 120 plus years of extreme Democrat gerrymandering in NC. Balance is always good.

    Two points:

    1 – Gerrymandering is wrong whoever does it.

    2 – Actually, the advent of modern computer technology has made gerrymandering 10 times more effective than it used to be. And here in North Carolina, as soon as the Dems started to get good at it, GOP judges throughout their maps. Bottom line: North Carolina has never seen the practice as “perfected” (in the evil sense of the word) as it has been by the GOP in 2012.

    And here I was tallying this up myself, and to come here and find you all crunched the numbers too! If we had a truly representative government, the votes numbers would relate to the congressional elections. We need fair elections. We need proportional representation so as to eliminate gerrymandering.

    It depends on which oxen is being ridden. There always seems to be a really good reason for the poor and the people in rural areas to be taken advantage of. Nonprofits,democrats and liberals appear to talk the talk but never walk the walk. The fight is about power and no computer model can ever erase that factor.
