Description

Winston Churchill once said, “Democracy is the worst form of Government except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.…”

Churchill was on to something. While I’m sure the vast majority of people listening to this would support the idea of democracy in theory, how a democracy is implemented can be tricky. 

Change the rules, and you can totally change the outcome, even if the voters vote exactly the same. This is especially true with geographical representation. 

Learn more about gerrymandering, its history, how it works, and measures to get rid of it on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.
