Gerrymandering
Gerrymandering is in fact is judged negatively because it unfairly divides districted to favor a certain party line lines are messed with every 10 years. This disenfranchise group of voters separates the minority votes into different districts so their vote basically won"t count (Long Island minority vote). Politian"s are still doing this "Because it makes their seats safer"or so they think. But gerrymandering is done to benefit parties, not individual politicians. Thus, seats grow safer only for the party: gerrymandering makes general-election challenges less likely"(The Economist). They think keeping it around will help when in reality it is just hurting both parties because it is not a real challenge anymore. In my opinion gerrymandering is still around because politicians need it. It is also still around because there has not been a fair way to solve. Some suggestions on to fix gerrymandering would be to fix the lines completely based on population and just keep it like that without moving them to party any favor. Just base it all on population could help a lot because then the real party would get elected, and it will be more of a challenge for politicians.
