Opinion: The Death of the Gerrymander?

AOL News:
"Yet this increased use of gerrymandering to influence national politics may be its downfall.

In the past, redistricting was never an exciting focus of politics -- its boring nature was turned into a joke on 'The Simpsons.' Instead, it operated as a tool where legislators could increase their chances of re-election, as well as reward friends and punish enemies.

Once it is out in the open, voters don't like it -- much as they don't like other attempts to game the political system and violate a sense of fair play. And unlike other political process reforms, such as campaign finance, there's an easy nonpartisan solution to redistricting."
