Not like this.
GOP took Rep Marcy Kaptur's square of a major metro district and turned it into a snake (green area) at the top of the state. I trust that will be changed.

Lamar: In May a panel of federal judges in Cincinnati described the district as "a bizarre, elongated sliver of a district that sever numerous counties." The purpose for that nonsensical grouping is to pack as many Democratic voters as possible into a single district. The court held that the 9th is a blatant partisan gerrymander, but there will be no federal judicial remedy since the Supreme Court's ruling in June that the courts have no role in ending partisan gerrymandering.

The idea of mapping out districts every 10 yrs when gerrymandering is used IS what's archaic. The will of the majority is erased.

End gerrymandering and we'll see the true vote.

Done.
True, Elbridge Gerry, was a (D).

Excuse me. I should have been more specific and included the definition of gerrymandering.

Definition of gerrymandering

: the practice of dividing or arranging a territorial unit into election districts in a way that gives one political party an unfair advantage in elections

It makes you wonder:

1. Why is she yelling?

3. So this is yer typical CNN viewer, eh?
4. This why CNN never has good ratings?
 
No, he wasn’t. He was a member of Jefferson’s Democratic-Republican Party, which is not the same as the Democratic Party … as has been pointed out to your lying ass numerous times.
By and large Dem and Repub party election platforms have been the same for a very long time. Dems have communal policies while Repubs want rugged individual policies.

Republicans were in control of redistricting a decade ago and created the snake.

In evenly split Ohio, redistricting gives GOP 12-4 edge in congressional seats - cleveland.com

I would let the members of the party that won in the most resent election nearest the redistricting period re-draw the boundaries using a political process with guidance by federal law and the U.S. court system...oh, wait.
