That neat map has people talking about political bubbles & geography, but remember: Land doesn't vote, & precincts are arbitrary boundaries. We drew nonpartisan congressional maps for every state & Clinton won a majority despite all that red

Under this nonpartisan national congressional map, Clinton won 219 districts to Trump's 216. But the minority of districts that voted for Trump cover 84% of the land. A reminder that geography-based analyses can be misleading

These “nonpartisan” districts here seem to significantly sacrifice geographic compactness, which is the number one standard for district drawing.Gerrymandering districts to undo democrats natural disadvantage in their base being concentrated in urban areas is still gerrymandering

Did this “nonpartisan” District map use an algorithm, such as Optimally Compact?

There’s no such thing as a non partisan congressional map.
