New Report Shows Effects of Redistricting

A new report by POLIDATA on the presidential election results by congressional district shows how rapidly the nation is becoming polarized. The number of districts in which voters split between the presidential candidate of one party and the congressional candidate of the other went from 103 in 1992 to 59 last year. The reason for this increasing polarization is redistricting. The process is now so precise (due, largely, to the use of computers), that the resulting districts are far more homogeneous in partisan terms.

This report is yet more evidence that something drastic has to be done about redistricting in the United States.
