What will the Supreme Court rule on gerrymandering?

This analysis reviews the possible outcomes of Supreme Court rulings on gerrymandering.

After discussing the options, it concludes:

“No matter how the court rules, here’s what we know already: People are increasingly paying attention to how districts are drawn, and they aren’t happy about it. If the court does strike down extreme partisan gerrymandering, the legal battles could continue for years. If the court sides with the gerrymandering states, opponents will try to change things outside the Supreme Court.”
