  •  We've pretty much... (7+ / 0-)

    Won the west in terms of redistricting, despite not having any partisan gerrymanders.  

    Look at what we're seeing.  

    CA:  3-5 D Pickups
    NV:  1-2 D Pickups
    CO:  0-2 D Pickups
    AZ:  0-2 D Pickups
    WA: 1 D Pickup (almost certain, although we won't know final map).  

    Standpat maps in Oregon, Idaho, and Hawaii don't hurt us or help us.  

    New Mexico is still a question mark, but it's hard for me to see a court-drawn map which is worse than standpat.  

    Utah is of course a pretty nasty R gerrymander, but it's just one state.  

    The rest of the states are single-district and not subject to redistricting.  

    So on the whole, we'll at least gain a net of four seats in the west at worst.  At best, gaining thirteen isn't out of the question.
