  •  The map is good for a D gerrymander (0+ / 0-)

    But a commission wouldn't split Ann Arbor, nor Ingham County. Michigan legislative maps almost always follow county and municipality lines, and I think that there may be a statute preventing excessive county or city splits, which would make the South-East Michigan portion of your map pretty questionable. However, it is still possible to make a decent D-gerrymander without excessively splitting municipalities.

      is in Oakland and Macomb Counties. A fair map could net us 3 seats.
