Gerrymandering does not have a huge impact on the presidential election.

But it is significant at state level and it is at state level that gerrymandering has been widely employed to skew power towards the Republicans.

Who then use these states to enact voter supression laws, that have a huge impact at presidential level.

The Democrats have forgotten that ALL politics is local.
That would seem to indicate that the Republicans are better politicians than the Democrats. Because - gerrymandering is not unique to one party. I guess the RNC is just better at the process. I thought the elites were so smart? Let a bunch of rubes from fly-over country beat the coastal brain trust. Shocking.
