View Diary: What if legislators didn't have to draw majority-minority districts? Democrats would lose big (71 comments)

  •  Majority minority districts (0+ / 0-)

    Although Democrats could lose a few seats, there would likely be significantly fewer radicals holding seats in the south without these gerrymandered minority "super districts". If instead of one district in a state like Louisiana with overwhelming minority population you had three districts with, say, 45% minority populations, more congressmen would be forced to pay attention to the needs of their minority constituents. In fact, Democrats may even be competitive in some of these new swingy districts.
