Analysis: Partisan Gerrymandering in the 2016 Election

Gerrymandered districts before U.S. Supreme Court

The Campaign Legal Center has conducted an initial analysis of the depth of partisan gerrymandering in the 2016 election, which was the third election held since the 2011 round of redistricting. With three elections’ worth of data, we can now say with even more certainty that the redistricting plans in the post-2010 cycle evidence more extreme partisan gerrymandering than any other decade in modern American history. For the third time this decade, we saw huge skews in favor of either Democrats or Republicans in plans across the country.
