Credibly promising to be irresponsible...since 2004!
Oh, hey, that's going to be my new district. I was in a different one, but now I'm part of the ink blot.
And that's a Democrat legislature. So let's stop with all the whining about the Repubs in NC. Redistricting is war, plain and simple.
Covers my old residence in NE MoCo.
This is all about getting rid of one Republican representative-- Roscoe Bartlett.
I think I'm in that district, and I live on the West Coast..
So let's stop with all the whining about the Repubs in NC.The existing NC maps are pretty heavily gerrymandered. The Repubs had the same percentage of votes for US House as they did for US Senate, NC House, and NC Senate. The latter three they won massively (the NC Legislature because the Supreme Court required less-gerrymandered maps than normal), the former, not so much.I pointed that out to you at the time when you wondered by the GOP hadn't won more US House seats in NC.Every incumbent GOP member of Congress from NC won a majority easily more than any incumbent Democrat,
This post of your, Munger. I can't believe you were really confused by: So how do you get an explanation that says national swing, huge Republican tide, corrupt state legislature....except for pretty much all the Democratic members of Congress won, most of them by 5% or more.Explanation was simple-- old maps were Democrat-gerrymandered (NC Leg was not so much because of NC Supreme Court).The swing from a Dem-gerrymander to a GOP one could be enormous.
