    Gerrymandering was always wrong.  But usually I think it kind of balanced out, although I could be wrong since I've never seen evidence either way.  The difference this time is the Republicans won a wave election in a redistricting year, so they were able to use their artificially inflated strength from the wave to draw the maps and bake in that artificial strength.  By the end of the decade I think a lot of the "safe" seats will be blue and, even if they still can draw the maps, there won't be as many "safe" places for them to hide.

    There is truth on all sides. The question is how much.
