10. Michigan results-

It is true.

In MICHIGAN- Democrats got more than 64% of the vote of HOUSE districts-

but, because of gerrymandering- only got 5 of 14 House seats.


MI CONG DISTRICT
DEM REP Seat
1st- 164,541 - 166,902 R
2nd 108,957 -194,530 R
3rd 144,718 -173,084 R
4th 104,601 -196,837 R
5th 213,664 -103,396 D
6th 134,579 - 171,670 R
7th 136,508 -169,184 R
8th 128,622 -202,126 R
9th 208,834 - 114,746 D
10th 97,919 -225,811 R
11th 15,8889 -181,796 R
12th 216,537 -92,305 D
13th 235,258 -38,765 D
14th 270,184 - 51,395 D


DEM Rep
Totals: 2323811 2082547


So - IN MICHIGAN on TUESDAY-

DEMS got 2,323,811 votes for House members.
and REPS got 2,082,547

BUT- because of Gerrymandering, (Repoublican Governor, House, AND SENATE gave them full control over district design)

9 seats went to republicans- (R)


and only 5 seats went to democrats in this week's election. . 5 (D)
