At heart of landmark Supreme Court case: a gerrymandered map that has helped lock in huge legislative majorities for Wisconsin GOP There have now been three big election cycles since the current Wisconsin map took effect, featuring three very different outcomes at the top of the ticket. In 2012, President Barack Obama, a Democrat, carried the state by 7 points. In 2014, Gov. Scott Walker, a Republican, carried the state by 6 points. And in 2016, the two parties finished in a virtual tie for president, with Republican Donald Trump beating Democrat Hillary Clinton by less than a point. But these partisan shifts had little effect on the battle for the 99-seat state Assembly, where the GOP’s margin of control has averaged more than 20 seats under the lopsided map Republicans drew in 2011.
