Virginia and gerrymandering

Republicans won the drawing today for the House of Delegate slot where votes resulted in a tie.  They have A 51-49 majority.

However, Democrats won the popular vote total 1,306,384 (53.17%) to 1,075,206 (43.76%) for the Republicans.

Why don’t Democrats have the majority of the seats?  Gerrymandering .  Both parties are guilty of gerrymandering but the Republicans have done it much more because they control many more state legislatures.  Sad!
