The Final Nail in the Coffin for Democrat Redistricting Hopes Is Hammered Home – Opinion

It has been an emotional roller coaster ride through the 2022 redistricting process. Both sides have claimed victory at various points in the past year. Recently, Democrats believed that they would win, not only by winning, but also significantly more seats, gaining five to six additional seats just through redistricting.

Unfortunately for them, the game isn’t over until it’s over, and a series of big decisions have completely nuked what advantage they thought they had. I’ve written extensively on those developments here at RedState, including the major GOP victories in Ohio, Alabama, and Florida.

But there has been one final shoe left to drop, and that’s the redistricting case in New York, where a shocking decision overturned the Democrat gerrymander there back in April. Marc Elias and the other left-wing redistricting activists were left fuming. They argued that the primary had to take place as originally scheduled on June 28th. The goal being for the gerrymander to be enforced in the coming elections.

However, the final nail has been hammered into the coffin for Democratic redistricting plans. The federal judge on Tuesday ruled that the primary may be moved to Aug 23rd. This is in keeping with New York’s past primary elections.

It is a pleasure to look at it.

It is important to note that Elias does not tell the truth. A August primary gives military voters and those from overseas plenty of time to submit their ballots. It’s been done before, and it’ll be done again. It is not happening to anyone’s voting rights.

Yet, it’s also worth noting that the blame for any issues regarding the primary election falls squarely on the Democrat Party in New York. They chose to push through a gerrymander so obviously illegal that even the state’s liberal Supreme Court couldn’t let it pass. They could not have broken the law to try and stack the deck in favor of Republicans, even if they were concerned about moving the primaries back.

Now, with the primary moved and the state Supreme Court giving the power to draw the maps to a special master, it’s all over but the crying. New York will be left with a much favorable map for the GOP. Perhaps even two- to three more seats.

This leaves everything. This leaves nothing but the Republicans winning total victory nationwide in redistricting. They aren’t just going to break even, an outcome that would have been welcomed a month ago, but will now gain seats. This will allow them to win more in what was already a strong November. You are tired of not winning?
