Redistricting maps favor Republicans to retake Congress

“The latest redistricting maps heading into the November 2022 midterms show Republicans are poised to gain control of both chambers of Congress, allowing the party to block President Joe Biden’s radical agenda,” the outlet reports.

The outlet adds, “control of the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives is officially in play for Republicans as the 2022 midterms loom over the Democrats, according to redistricting maps which show the Democrats lost several house seats despite their heavy gerrymandering in Illinois and New York.”

So far, 47 states have finalized their new congressional maps, that is if one includes the six states that only have one district. The three states that have still not done so are Missouri, New Hampshire, and New York.

Five-Thirty-Eight currently has 196 congressional seats leaning Republican and 169 seats leaning Democrat. There are 34 seats that are listed as “highly competitive.”

Five-Thirty-Eight highlights the fact that the Democrats “have gained more ground from the process” than the Republicans even though the Republicans had “control over [the] drawing [of] more districts.” This is because of the “aggressive map-drawing by Democrats” combined with the fact that in some areas courts have not allowed Republicans to do the same.

On the national scene, Democrats have managed to gain seven seats in the new maps compared to the Republicans’ one. Also, seven seats have been changed to “highly competitive.”

Yet, the Republicans are still looking like they will come out on top in 2022.

The Republicans only need to net five seats to win back the House and one seat to win back the Senate.
