    You may have gotten the wrong impression - the 51% = 31% didn't apply to Congressional votes cast in all 50 states.  That figure applied to North Carolina.  Gerrymanding impacted the number of Congressional (and presumably state legislator) seats in a number of states.  However, it's important to get figures we tell others right so they learn they can rely on what we say.
