OPINION: Products of gerrymandering

The Supreme Court of North Carolina struck down the state’s heavily gerrymandered districts that would have given Republicans at least 10, and possibly 11, of 14 Congressional seats. The legislative redistricting might have given the GOP veto proof majorities in both houses. In a state that has statewide races routinely decided by less five points, and often less than two, that’s clearly extreme gerrymandering.

Things change fast in politics. After months of political pundits predicting doom and destruction for Democrats in November, the narrative may be beginning to change. Redistricting doesn’t appear to be the disaster that so many people, me included, expected. A poll released last week has Democrats leading Republicans in the Congressional generic ballot for the first time in months. Not a bad start for 2022 if you’re a Democrat.
