CRAZY DISTRICTS, LOPSIDED ELECTIONS PODCAST NOW AVAILABLE
In the 2012 election, Democratic candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives nationally got 1.5 million more votes than Republican candidates but the Republicans emerged with a 33-seat majority in the House. Why? Because of gerrymandering. That’s when politicians draw voting districts to favor one political party or another.
The Sanford School has created an excellent podcast on gerrymandering called Crazy Districts, Lopsided Elections as part of the Ways & Means series. Click the link to listen or download the podcast at iTunes.
