The Facts

  • A state court have rejected accusations of GOP gerrymandering in NC.

  • Voting rights groups had claimed the new districts were unconstitutional.

The Spin

Left narrative

The maps unconstitutionally reduce minority representation; this ruling is the result of a politicized judiciary.

Right narrative

To rule the re-draw unconstitutional would set a dangerous precedent. It is more democratic to make politicians accountable for re-designing voting districts.

Establishment-critical narrative

Both Democrats and Republicans gerrymander massively, making American democracy far from fair. Election laws should change.
