In an era of computer-assisted gerrymandering, legislatures redraw boundaries to reflect "the big sort" and to create as few truly competitive districts as possible.

So here in Indiana, despite a 57-43 actual party vote in the 2012 elections, Republicans have 69 seats in the state House.

So I'd argue just the opposite of your conclusion: too many of our representatives are elected by the few voters who know exactly what they are doing.
