Gerrymandering is rigging elections

Gerrymandering is when State legislators twist and distort voting districts to pick their voters. In some cases a Party can win only 40% of the total vote in a State yet control 70% of the district seats due to this rigging. Courts in PA, WI and NC have already struck down this obviously partisan gerrymandering. And the Supreme Corp has a case on this coming up in their next session. Trevor Noah explains it succinctly in this short video. Dump is right about one thing, and perhaps only one thing: The system is rigged.
