Dave Wasserman, House editor for Cook Political Report, NBC News contributor, and one of the nation’s top election forecasters, joins Ron Steslow for part three of Politicology’s Drawing Democracy series to discuss:

  • Which states stand to gain and lose House seats and Electoral College votes 
  • How districting itself may preclude partisan proportionality and competitiveness
  • What voters most need to pay attention to and how to be active through the process
  • Democratization of district mapping technology
