  • GOP House Advantage
    FILE - This Sept. 6, 2012 file photo shows Rep. David Price, D-N.C. speaking the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. Democrats long have claimed that Republicans abused their legislative powers to elect a disproportionate number of U.S. House members. A court in Florida is lending credence to their complaint, and North Carolina Democrats are fighting a GOP-drawn map in state court. The battles are shining a new light on the fiercely partisan practice of gerrymandering, in which state officials draw congressional districts to help their party. Both parties have done it for decades, but Republicans refined the practice in 2011, a year after they won control of numerous state governments preparing to redraw congressional maps based on the 2010 census. It’s one reason Republicans hold a solid House majority even though Americans cast 1.4 million more votes for Democratic House candidates than for GOP House candidates in 2012.

  • Obama's Split-screen Presidency
    This combination image of President Barack Obama shows him, left, talking about the economy during a visit to Denver on July 9, 2014, and right, talking at the White House in Washington about the situation in Iraq on June 19, 2014. There's the confident Obama ridiculing opponents to the delight of his supporters. Then there's the increasingly unpopular president hobbled by gridlock in Washington and foreign policy crises. While Obama has long sought refuge away from the capital when his frustrations boiled over, the gap between his outside and inside games has perhaps never been bigger.
