Gerrymandering: Crash Course Government and Politics #37 by CrashCourse | YouTube Channel Embed | Culture | Scoop.it
Today Craig is going to talk about a topic that makes voters and politicians alike ANGRY! We're going to talk about Gerrymandering - that is the process in which voting districts are redrawn in a way to favor one party during elections. As you'll see, this is why election outcomes on Census years (which tend to be when districts are redrawn) are a really big deal. So we'll talk about how some of these cockamamie voting districts come to be and explain how Gerrymandering can affect the outcomes (and misrepresent voters) during elections. But even with all these rage-inducing and bizarre district maps, it's important to remember that it isn't ALL political scheming, but also a reflection of the tendency for Democrats to live in urban areas.

Lucas Olive's curator insight, April 28, 2017 8:19 PM
This article relates to what we have been learning in class because it talks about how gerrymandering works and how it manipulates political geography. My opinion on this topic is that it's a big problem for people who oppose the side that is gerrymandering and it's really unfair to the opposing side.
Kassie Geiger's curator insight, April 30, 2017 9:35 PM
This is related to world cultural geography by the word gerrymandering. Gerrymandering is the process of redrawing legislative boundaries for the purpose of benefiting the party in power. Gerrymandering is completely and utterly unfair to the powerless party. The process is practically setting up zones of people who are, for instance, democratic, that means that particular county (region, district, etc.) is democratic majority and possibly have republican minority, therefore the democrats win that county (region, district, etc).
