Gerrymandering could cost Democrats the House in 2016. Why? Because it probably did in 2012

gerrymandering could once again cost Democrats a majority in 2016 even if they win more votes cast in House races nationwide than Republicans do—as they did in 2012.

we must acknowledge just how systematically undemocratic our congressional elections actually are. One party should not be able to consistently lose the national popular vote yet easily retain its majority, and voters should pick their representatives, not the other way around. We simply cannot have a government of the people, by the people, and for the people until we end partisan gerrymandering.
