    And gerrymandering certainly slows things down.  Just pointing out a silver lining.  Eventually those districts will go purple.

      ...they get gerrymandered every 10 years...and whomever is in control politically at the time on the state level will decide just how that gerrymandering will occur.

      The gerrymandering currently in place across so much of the USA...esp. in states that vote "blue" in national elections but have GOP in control of the legislatures and governorships...have gerrymandered things SO skewed...as never before...that those weirdly-shaped areas can only change if Democrats moved to those areas in droves.

      Democrats are primarily 1) urban dwellers; 2) people of color and therefore NOT likely to move out into suburbs, exurbs or the rural country in large enough numbers to change those areas blue...sorry...

      Ignorance is bliss only for the ignorant. The rest of us must suffer the consequences.
