266 | Nick Seabrook: Gerrymandering, Responsive Politics, and the Threat to Democracy

Nick Seabrook, author of One Person, One Vote: A Surprising History of Gerrymandering in America, joins The Realignment to discuss the history of gerrymandering and its costs, the need for responsive politics, why despite its long history, gerrymandering is particularly harmful today, and the reasons why campaign finance reform, electoral reform, and new parties won't solve America's polarization problem.
