A state gets electors for each congressional district and two for their Senators, but I think the allocation for each state is based on the popular state-wide vote. Some states are winner-take-all and some are proportional, but I don't see how gerrymandering could affect the way electors vote.

But it has most definitely distorted city, county, state and Congressional representation and that gets expressed in all mid-term, city, county and state elections, and it also has a distorting influence on who gets seated in the courts.
