Minnesota Unrealistic 8-0 Dem Map
Minnesota has two very blue cities, Minneapolis and St. Paul. The cities are surrounded by inner-ring suburbs that are not quite as blue but very much lean Democratic (60%+ Obama in 2008). However,

Two Virginia Maps-Dem Gerrymander and Court COI Map
With all of the exciting stuff coming out of Virginia, I thought it might be cool to do two Virginia maps that might exist after 2020. By 2020, taking migration into account, I would say the odds ...

Washington State Gerrymanders

Republican Gerrymander of Massachusetts

Missouri Democratic Gerrymander
With Missouri turning increasingly red, this is not going to happen, even in 2020. It used to be that portions of rural southeast and northern Missouri were Democratic enough that we could count ...

New Mexico and Nevada Democratic Gerrymanders
There was no reason for me to do this since neither state will re-gerrymander until 2021 and both states have Democratic legislatures and Republican governors. However, I feel fairly confident that ...

South Carolina Dem Gerrymander without VRA
This is clearly a hypothetical for two reasons: 1) the VRA mandates a majority black district, which this map does not have, and a Democratic gerrymander requires the trifecta, which also won’t ...
