    Then I guess they aren't following the constitution, since all people are not represented equally. Of course in Virginia we have Democrats with districts that aren't contiguous due to gerimandering. BTW, I made no claim, so my supposed pwnage is null. Apparently you don't know what that means.

    I explained this.

    Each STATE's population is divided equally, but they can't all divide by the same amount. So if you have a state with 100,000 people and 2 seats, each seat will have 50,000 people. Another state with 140,000 people and 3 seats is going to have roughly 46,666 people per seat. Simple math.

    Of course in Virginia we have Democrats with districts that aren't contiguous due to gerimandering.
    No, you do not. Non-contiguous would mean there two parts that don't touch (unless divided by water).

    Pretty much every state has gerrymandered districts that are not very compact, but all are contiguous.

    BTW, I made no claim, so my supposed pwnage is null. Apparently you don't know what that means.
    You weren't pwned on the claim itself. You were pwned on the claim that Deuce was pwned. It was a counterpwn. I know exactly what it means.

    You weren't pwned. You were right. The district size varies by state, from about 500,000 to 900,000 people each.

    Hence the quotes around "wrong"
