      Otherwise, why Gerrymander at all.

      •  "safe" districts are only safe as long as (0+ / 0-)

        an opponent cannot convince enough people they'll do a better jo than the incumbent.  The dems have helped create these because they won't bother to challenge those incumbents and because they get "safe" seats of their own.  Maybe switching to district level EC voting will make state and local dems more energetic in contesting ALL seats.
