    Did her lame attempt change the outcome?

    Is your lame attempt at deflecting from the OP changing the permanent damage to NC ?

    Democrats won two state-wide elections this year in NC.

    The 2010 election gave the NC GOP a remap resulting in supermajorities that have no fear of their actions.

    2010, 2014, 2016 elections have consequences when multiple parts of the Democratic base don't turn out.

    Such as in WI, MI, and PA this year for starters .

    I hear a lot of conjecture.

    Mike Madigan and Illinois are calling, they have something to show you.

    That doesn't say anything.

    For every Madigan/Illinois there are 3 NCs, with severe gerrymanders in Texas, Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida, Virginia and every southern state just for starters.

    Democrats have their work cut out for them in 2018 if they want to turn these states around in 2020 .

    You act like gerrymandering is specific to Republican leaning states. It isn't, at all. Learn to see malfeasance on both sides of the aisle.

    There are only a few states that actually draw their maps without bias in them.
    If you were to do this in CA, or IL you would change their state legislature dramatically.

    The fact is gerrymandering is not set to one party.

    FL Voters passed a constitutional amendment to get rid of such things.

    They are when they're sued for by a 1% loser. Stein pocketed a bunch of money.
