I live in WI, a severely gerrymandered state. Even some of the Republican legislators were willing to say gerrymandering is a bad idea because, even though it currently benefits them, it doesn't benefit their constituents. What these legislators discovered was an increase in pressure from donors to do their bidding, especially when that request would have been terrible for their voters. As they told the legislators, you are going to get elected even if you take a position that your voters don't like. The Supreme Court basically threw this back at the states to solve, but the reality is a gerrymandered legislature is never going to willingly give up that power. If the courts can't solve this, it will have to be done at the federal level. I, for one, am tired of living in a state where a minority of voters get to control all of the decisions and the majority of voters go unheard. That it fundamentally undemocratic.
