Crooked Lines for Crooked Times

Why Americans Actually Voted For A Democratic House. (Think Progress, 11/7/2012)

Tally as of November 7, 2012
  • House Democrats:    53,952,240
  • House Republicans:  53,402,643

Yet at the time that this post was written, the Republican held a 233-192 advantage, with 10 seats still undecided.

Excerpt:    Republicans won several key state legislatures and governors’ mansions in the election cycle before redistricting, and they gerrymandered those states within an inch of their lives.
