Please. You think thats gerrymandered. Check out NC 12.

“Illinois’ 4th district is the winner.”

Damn.

Does that district actually have two parts or is there a connection somewhere?

“Why can’t all districts look like Wyoming’s first district?”

Some of these state legislatures, while they are in Republican hands, should rewrite the rules on how to define districts. There should be some kind of ratio of length to width.
