    going to do when it changes again?

    In 2020 you have a presidential cycle with a census year, a near 40% minority voting population, and nothing to stop the democrats from gerrymandering the other way since the GOP have opened the floodgates.

    If 2020 is a high turnout year, the GOP will be lucky to have 150 house seats by 2022.

    GOP- Fact Free since 1981!

      of either party gerrymandering the other into extinction, right now I am so angry at the way the Republicans manipulated and lied fair redistricting into failing on the ballot in Ohio this past past November that I am thinking "Yeah! Let's go for it." I will probably feel that way even more strongly if the GOP resists efforts to return it to the ballot and tries to defeat it again. If they do this repeatedly until the Democrats take control in 2020 and then scream and wail and try to put the EXACT SAME PLAN on the ballot, I will want us to laugh in their faces and shrink them to a nearly invisible minority.

      Join us now, suckers, or face the blowback.

      Jon Husted is a dick.

      d not take effect until after the Census, i.e., by laws passed after 2020 election.
