OJ,

While it's great that Chris Cannon (R_UT) has the nation's youngest district, there seems to be a lot of Dems with rather young median ages. And a lot of Reps that have older median ages.

Kinda puts a little crimp in any suggestion that the red states have the birth advantage, doesn't it?

No, the Democrats represent districts with high Latino immigration. Their social views make it unlikely those districts can stay Democrat.

This is geeo data building off the articles earlier concerning per cent married and number of children in rach district. Married with children was almost all Republican. Single childless was almost all Dem.

I also noticed that whoever put this together does not know what the maps of Wisconsin and West Virginia look like. Another low point in Geographical knowledge or coastal apathy, take your pick.
