An Early Look at Virginia Redistricting

A diary postby PenDem at the Swing State Project takes an early look at the 2011 congressional reapportionment in Virginia.  There is no significant statistical info given to back up the assessments, but it makes for interesting reading.

The post consists of three redistricting scenarios: Bi/Non-Partisan, Democrat Tilt, and GOP Tilt.  I have a hunch that while these scenario’s are statistically sound, they don’t reflect the personal inputs that ultimately drive reapportionment.  As was once said, who is on the undercard?  Who wants to  be able to be able to run for a congressional seat, or who wants more protection of what they have?

We shall see…
