    done in a few states that would otherwise be heavily gerrymandered such as Missouri, though not for congressional districts (though it wouldn't change the outcome there anyway).  For states like Michigan that recently passed Right to Work, the legislature is so heavily gerrymandered that Republicans have a 70% majority in the state senate, all in a state where Obama won by nearly 10%.

    If I had the expertise of local geography needed I would have drawn maps for the state legislatures too, but I did link to one good proposal for the Michigan senate that shows a Dem majority is very much attainable without gerrymandering.
