Yes, you completely missed it.
Essay question for tomorrow: Please explain how gerrymandering affected the House elections in such a way that Romney got 48 percent of the vote but Republicans have 55 percent of the House seats.
"Imagine four neighboring congressional districts, two of which are 60 percent Democratic and two of which are 60 percent Republican. One would expect that each party would win two seats in the House. But if the Republican state legislature re-draws the district lines so as to make one district 100 percent Democratic, and the other three districts each 67 percent Republican, then instead of each party winning two representatives, the Republicans will win in three of the four districts."
Again, simple math stumps the Republican.
