Gerrymandering In Colorado

 Here is a breakdown of our new congressional districts as submitted by the all new and certifiably neutral committee on redistricting:

This doesn't look all that bad. It seems to allocate 3 districts to Republicans, 3, 4, and 5, and 3 to the Dems, 1. 2. and 6, while leaving 7 and 8 quite competitive. Overall, this is better than I had expected. 

Worth noting is that the Dems have an easier time harvesting ballots, which is legal here, since large numbers of their constituents live communally in jails, institutions, and nursing homes.  What Republicans need is more candidates named Brandon, as the chant of "Let's Go, Brandon!" seems to be quite popular this year.

Not everyone is favorably impressed.
