How gerrymandering saved the #GOP and yes if #Dems had won big in ’10 they would have done it 2 http://m.politico.com/iphone/story/0613/93018.html …

The Democrats’ lost decade? – Alex Isenstadt – POLITICO.com:

The GOP effectiveness in erecting a gerrymandered fortress has created a paradox: Even in a fast-changing electorate, with many demographic trends favoring Democrats, the part of the national government that the Founders imagined would be most responsive to shifts in public opinion and voter behavior may actually be the least responsive.

The possibility of a decade or more of GOP House dominance is something Democrats – and even some Republicans, who still need to hit up donors – are loathe to talk about publicly. But make no mistake: Even as they struggle in presidential and Senate races, Republicans have a structural advantage in the House that could last through the next four elections.

Karl Rove, George W. Bush’s political architect, stopped short of predicting that the speaker’s gavel will remain in GOP hands through 2020. But he said the dual factors of sharp Republican line drawing and population shifts provided a solid foundation for the party.

“The impact,” he said, “is certainly favorable to Republicans at the congressional level.”
