  •  CA shows what happens with honest districts (4+ / 0-)

    I appreciate the snark in your comment, structureguy.

    In CA, they did away with safe seats and the Republicans are now unable to prevent a supermajority in either house of the Legislature.

    Without safe seats, the GOP extremism would be exacting an even higher price than it did in the general election.

    •  the old CA maps were not a good measure (0+ / 0-)

      of how Democratic the state had become, hence why we did so well.

      Had the Dems taken an agressive gerrymander of the state it would be the GOP touting for an independent redistricting committee (and not the other way around). Still I'm glad to have the new maps.
