Impact of gerrymandering in Ohio

This is amazing stuff that shows how powerful gerrymandering is.

From the Cleveland.com article linked to below:

“… in terms of controlling Ohio’s government, the GOP won 73 of the 116 Statehouse races.
But the Republicans scored their wins for 63 percent of the seats while collecting just over 50 percent of the total vote.
This is a lot like what happened in Ohio’s 16 congressional districts, where Republicans won 75 percent of the seats with just 52 percent of the overall vote.”
