With 99 house districts redrawn and signed into law pending a few lawsuits. The Democrats lead in the gerrymandering wars 5-4. There are 336 dsitrcts still to be redrawn.

What's interesting to me is out of these 99 districts, only 6 are considered competititve. Which means 93 seats are safe for the incumbent or party that now holds them. Of the 6 competititve districts which may or may not switch, 5 are held by Democrats, 1 by Republicans.

The generic congressional ballot, nationwide has shrunk from 47-41 Democrat on 1 Aug down to 42-41 today. Based on a quarter of the redrawn districts and the generic congressional vote, today, not next Nov, today it looks like the GOP will pick up between 10-15 house seats. Still no red wave on the horizon. But with a year to go, who knows? The Republicans don't need a red wave to take back the House, just 5 seats. I'd say it looks like the GOP will get them plus a few more.

It is also interesting that in the generic, Republicans haven't gained a single percentage point whilce the Democrats have lost 5. Which simply means they have gone from voting Democratic to undecided.


It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
