GET ME REWRITE: The maps are rigged in Wisconsin and the evidence is overwhelming

Headline:  Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 9/15/2023
My argument was that the outcome had already been decided before any votes were cast. Forget about who the candidates are, forget about what the issues are, forget about what the polls say.  
The results in these legislative races were already “baked in” by how the districts were drawn.  [emphasis added]
Based solely on the new redistricting plan, paying zero attention to the actual campaign, I predicted that Republicans would win 63 of 99 Assembly districts, give or take a seat. 
They won 64.  
Does that sound like 'rigged' system?
