How bad are the new Republican legislative maps?
An analysis by the Campaign Legal Center says Republicans would give themselves a “large and durable” advantage in the districts”
“Assuming a statewide uniform swing in the vote, in order for there to be a Republican majority in the House, Republicans will only need a statewide vote of 45.7 percent. By contrast, Democrats would need 54.8 percent of the vote to get a majority in the House.”
Heads I win, tails you lose.
Typically, Republicans respond by saying: “Democrats did it too.” Democrats should say: “It was wrong then and it’s wrong now. It’s time for a change.”
