Another thing to consider is that gerrymandered districts tend to lose some of their tilt over time. Several districts that were gerrymandered to be solidly conservative suburban/exurban districts eight years ago swung left as new voters moved into booming suburbs. In Texas, Pete Sessions in the Dallas area and John Culberson in the Houston suburbs fell victim to this trend.
