  •  Right. that assumes they're gerrymandered at all (0+ / 0-)

    Nebraska has one district with people in it (NE-02, which is all of Omaha plus rural areas around it) and NE-01 and NE-03 are completely rural.  It's not as if they are dividing Omaha in half to break up that Democratic powerhouse.  (Yes, they shifted the districts a bit to make NE-02 more Republican after 2010, but not by splitting the only Democratic area in half)

    Maine has two districts - one with all the cities and one with the wilderness areas.  And both districts have voted in Democrats for 16 years.  

    Not quite the same as a Pennsylvania, where a 55%-45% D vote translates to an 80%-20% Republican delegation.  

    Plus they probably lacked the discriminatory intent which may be relevant to Kennedy.
