    "districts are set up for narrow Republican wins in red districts and wide Democratic wins in blue ones"

    To be fair, it's exactly the opposites in states with Democratic gerrymanders (think Illinois).  But your point is solid.  Gerrymandering is already wrong, but to have a gerrymander in, say, Mississippi affect a national election is even worse.

      Democrats tend to be geographically compact and therefore are naturally gerrymandered.
