Mark Levin is helpfully pointing out that Tuesday’s blowout for the Virginia GOP had a lot of help from federal judges who “selected a Virginia House of Delegates redistricting map that appears to heavily favor Democrats”:

From the Washington Post in January:

Federal judges have selected a Virginia House of Delegates redistricting map that appears to heavily favor Democrats, redrawing the lines of 26 districts and moving several powerful Republicans into unfavorable configurations.

Six Republicans would wind up in districts where a majority of voters chose Democratic President Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential election, according to an analysis of the maps by the nonpartisan Virginia Public Access Project. No current Democrats would see their voter majority change to Republican, based on those election results.

Virginia does not register voters by party.

If the court’s map selection stands, it would create a favorable environment for Democrats seeking to take control of the House of Delegates in elections this fall, according to the analysis. All 100 seats in the House are on the ballot, and Republicans hold a 51-to-48 majority.

Princeton professor Sam Wang agrees:

And now Virginia Dems will have full control over redistricting in 2020:

But, there’s some talk that the legislature will adopt redistricting reform that ends partisan gerrymandering:

Dems even campaigned on it, so we’ll see if they put their money where their mouths have been:

But after spending all that money to win everything, they’re just going to give it up? We. Are. Doubtful:
