2. A clump of east coast is practically black, not pink.

Hmmm, judging by how much they had to gerrymander Louisiana, it looks as though maybe it is not as much of a red state as I assumed, even after they tried to re-locate NOLA's Katrina/Rita survivors to a nice safely red district in Texas and other places. Southern tip of Texas, too.

Thank you for posting this pbmus. Talk about one picture being worth 1000 words!

3. My district in southeastern PA is shown as pink

Its boundaries aren't as outrageous as that block of black just to the west. But they tweaked it just enough in the last redistricting to turn what has been a swing district more Republican. Sometimes gerrymandering is subtle enough to fly under the radar.
