2022 #Midterms Simulation: #ArtoftheGerrymander

A Republican House win will be built on gerrymanders (TX/GA/FL/TN/LA, etc.)

To illustrate the need for fair maps, I'm calculating the results using the 2022 votes, but if every state had a Democratic gerrymander. #ElectionTwitter ImageImageImageImage

Iโ€™ll apply the difference in Presidential margin to the House result. Thanks @davesredist @mikemathieu @vest_team + @DKElections @PoliticsWolf

Keen to see how my maps perform over the decade; tried to comply with state law if partisan intent were allowed to stand.
#ArtoftheGerrymander: #Alabama

There's the spending boom I was waiting for...the NRCC drops $19.27 million on 31 House races, pulling ahead of its 2020 pace and adding the Biden +20% #PA12 to the board as targeted seat #64, backing Mike Doyle for retiring 14-term Dem Mike Doyle's seat.

Difference between a Republican & Democrat candidate

Iโ€™m Brad Pfaff, the Democratic nominee for #WI03.

We may have the most out of touch and extreme Republican opponents out here in western Wisconsin. Letโ€™s review some of his greatest hits and letโ€™s stop in together in November. ๐Ÿงต
Letโ€™s start with the fact heโ€™s one of five Republicans running for Congress who was at the Capitol on January 6th and he used campaign funds to pay for his trip. Derrick, to this day, still denies attending the insurrectionโ€ฆbut we have photo evidence. Image
It gets worse. Did you know he was fined and is on probation for taking a fully-loaded gun through airport security, with one round in the chamber?โ€ฆ

Big shakeup in DCCC's House battlefield this AM. The committee named 12 challengers to its "Red to Blue" program, added 3 members to its "Frontline" program, added 8 new GOP/Dem districts to its "In Play" list, and removed 6 GOP-held districts from its target list.

13th term Wisconsin Democratic Rep. Ron Kind's retirement from Congress is front page news in his #WI03 district this morning.
Kind D-WI:"Representing the people at home has been the honor of my life,but I never intended it to be the honor of my entire life. For 26yrs,Iโ€™ve flown to & from Washington,DC & traveled the 18 counties of the most beautiful Congressional District in the Nation almost every wk."
Kind D-WI: "But 26 years is enough--itโ€™s time for me to step back. My wife, Tawni, and I are looking forward to entering the next chapter of our lives."

This is a decent test of whether voters in a Trump/Dem district (#WI03) are actually moved by stories about 1/6 or react with a big yawn (FWIW, Van Orden has called violence at the Capitol "absolutely horrific").โ€ฆ
The uncomfortable reality for Dems is that the pro- democratic norms arguments that are the most compelling to the anti-Trump base tend to be the *least* effective messages w/ persuadable/Trump voters.

What do they care about? Pre-existing conditions, stimulus checks, etc.
If Dems make "but the GQP wants to end democracy!" the centerpiece of the race in #WI03, I'd like to prematurely congratulate them on:

1) feeling proud they "stood up for what's right"
2) losing a seat critical to the House majority

Speaker's election underway. Conducted aloud on House floor, alphabetically by member-elect surname.

Winner needs majority of members-elect voting for a candidate by surname. Can win with fewer than 218.

Pelosi, McCarthy formally nominated, but members-elect can vote for anyone
Blue Dog Rep. Jim Cooper (D-TN) voted for Pelosi for speaker for the 1st time since 2009.

Cooper voted "present" in 2019 and for Tim Ryan in 2017, Colin Powell in both 2015 elections and in 2013, and Heath Shuler in 2011. #tn05
Rep. Jason Crow (D-CO), who voted for Tammy Duckworth for speaker as a freshman in 2019, voted for Pelosi after an easy re-election win in #co06

Based on a variety of number-crunching sources, esp. @DKElections, it looks like there were at most 16 districts out of 435 that split their tickets between president/House in '20 - likely an all-time low.

For perspective, there were 83 such districts in '08 and 35 in '16.
Biden/R districts (9):

#CA21 Valadao
#CA25 Garcia
#CA39 Kim
#CA48 Steel
#FL27 Salazar
#NE02 Bacon
#NY24 Katko
#PA01 Fitzpatrick
#TX24 Van Duyne

Trump/D districts (7/8?):

#IL17 Bustos
#IA03 Axne
#ME02 Golden
#MI08 Slotkin
#NJ03 Kim
#NY22 Brindisi (?)
#PA08 Cartwright
#WI03 Kind
Correction to first tweet: at most 17, if Brindisi (D) prevails in #NY22. Would still be less than half of the 35 in 2016.

Time for super pacs to start running ads in these districts letting voters know if these people vote for impeachment, they get voted out. Period.
We're gonna make these people famous today

From now until Wednesday, it's time to put pressure on these Dems:

You vote with AOC and impeachment, and you're toast. She's in New York City and doesn't give a shit you're in a red district.

Voting for censure is your only way out
