Nationwide Analysis Of Gerrymandering Shows Arizona Districts 'A Little More Representative' Than Other States

The process of drawing political district boundaries is a political, and often controversial, one.

The Associated Press just released an analysis, applying a formula used in a court case in Wisconsin, to get a sense of how gerrymandered the country is, and which party benefits from that.

More on that in just a moment, but first, what is this formula? Wired Columnist Clive Thompson explained it to The Show in May.

So, now back to the AP analysis. For those results, I’m joined by David Lieb. He’s an AP correspondent in Jefferson City, Missouri, and did the analysis.
