Redistricting alone could give Republicans control of the House in 2022, experts say

Well now, here's a story everyone seems to be missing:

QUOTE:
The Census Bureau released the preliminary findings of its 2020 U.S. population count on Monday, setting the stage for a once-in-a-decade congressional redistricting process that could in itself be enough to give the Republican Party the five additional House seats needed to recapture the majority following the 2022 midterm elections.

Under the new count, California, Illinois, Michigan, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia will each lose a congressional seat. Colorado, Florida, Montana, North Carolina, Oregon and Florida will gain one seat, while Texas will add two.

“New census data and reapportionment add challenges for the Democrats in the midterm elections,” wrote Sarah Bianchi, political analyst at Evercore ISI, in a Tuesday note to clients, pointing out that states that President Joe Biden won in the 2020 election lost a net three congressional seats.

“The outcome was not as bad for Democrats as some thought it would be, and there is a long way to go in terms of mapping congressional districts for 2022. However there is no question that on balance it favors Republicans,” Bianchi added. “Based on historical odds, Democrats already face challenges to keep the House in 2022 as the party that holds the White House on average loses 27 seats, far greater than the slim majority Democrats hold today.”

Dave Wasserman, U.S. House editor at the nonpartisan Cook Political report, wrote in a Monday blog post that despite the boost Republicans are getting from reapportionment, the real gains will come from the fact that the GOP wields greater control over the redistricting process due to the party’s grip on power at the state level . . . .

There's was a volcanic eruption when Biden wanted to get more supreme court judges. You guys went off the derp end.
Now it's ok for the authorities to change the boundaries etc to help the republicans win. Oh the irony.

Lol. Republicans are never winning another election again. Once all of the white supremacists are in jail, the majority of their voters will be gone.

Hopefully Bernie Sanders doesn’t pass voting reform for prisoners like he wanted to do in the past
Shut your frigging piehole, freak!

Does not matter if the GOP has a majority in the House after 2022.

They will never impeach Biden.
No one, and I mean no one, wants Kamala anywhere near the Oval Office without a visitor pass.

What irony? Districts have been redrawn to the advantage of the party in power in the state for a very long time (and no one with an above room temperature IQ believes the democrats wouldn't be doing the exact same thing if they were in power, and claiming to be virtuous at the same time). Not so much adding justices to the SC until you get the rulings you want.

Western Va.
Who the hell is Alex Wong? The Op-ed, if you can call it that, is clearly intended to raise the outrage level among already mentally compromised lefties. Gerrymandering was invented by democrats.

It is done by an independent body.

Trump stacked the SC 6 to 3 with repigs and they still didn't hear his challenges.
They worked well.

There's no stacking if you get to replace justices that die or retire. Stacking is what Quid Pro wants to do, which is keep adding justices until he gets the rulings he wants.
