    gerrymandered (by Dems) districts. Solid Dem legistlature even with Rep govs have made MA this way...I can't compare it to how much it is gerrymandered compared to what Reps did but there is no reason (without data) to think it was more or less manipulated. The shapse of the districts are hilarious which is I think the point of the graphic.

    Dems do it too I guess. The difference though is that we dont' think we can then allocate electoral college votes in a Presidential election by congressional district, dividing them up instead of being winner take all. As I hope you all know, that is what Republicans are planning right now for 2016. It will be a coup if they do this.
