They have gained a few House leans in the news redistricting….
But they still are behind the Republicans for the November House contest….
FiveThirtyEight: “As has been true for decades, this national congressional map is biased toward Republicans. Assuming Louisiana’s congressional map is reinstated upon appeal, the 2022 House map will feature 208 congressional districts with a FiveThirtyEight partisan leanof R+5 or redder, compared with 187 districts that have a FiveThirtyEight partisan lean of D+5 or bluer. Throw in the highly competitive seats, and 225 districts would be more Republican than the country as a whole, while 210 would be more Democratic.”
“In other words, if the national House popular vote were perfectly tied, Republicans would theoretically win 225 seats and Democrats would win 210 (ignoring, for now, other factors like candidate quality).”
“By this measure, however, Democrats are actually in a slightly better position than they were before, having added a handful of Democratic-leaning seats.”
